Maurice Denis
Modern (19th century-1945) Painting
(Granville, France, November 25, 1870 - November 13, 1943, Paris, France)

Maurice Denis was born in Granville, France in 1870. He was a school friend of Vuillard and Roussel; also a friend of Bonnard and Serusier, whom he met at Academie Julian. He combined erudition with a sense of purity and refined sensibility, but unfortunately, he was less talented than his friends. He wrote some of the classic texts of modernistic painting, and he did so at a very early age.
