The artist

Paul Sérusier (1864-1927)

Paul Sérusier is a French symbolist painter and one of the initiators of the Nabis movement. In 1885, he joined the Académie Julian, a private Parisian school of painting and sculpture created by the painter Rodolphe Julian (1839-1907). He is interested in orphism (the doctrine of ancient Greece based on the myth of Orpheus) or theosophy (religious syncretism according to which all religions contain some truth). The Nabis group was then joined by other artists such as Édouard Vuillard, but it lasted only about ten years. Dispersion took place around 1900.
