The Art of Camille Hilaire

French artist Camille Hilaire (1916-2004) began painting and drawing at a young age, often going to the local library to "copy" the works of the old masters such as Hans Holbein and Albrecht Dürer. He received his formal training at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris as well as with André Lhote, with whom he became friends. During his award-winning career he produced a variety of works including, stained glass, mosaics, prints, tapestries and paintings. I love his post-cubist style and use of overlapping color fields. Enjoy!
