George Desvallières (1861-1950)

One of the founders of the Salon d'Automne, a painter untied to any school,
George Desvallières defends the Fauvists, the Cubists and the Decorative Arts,
all before leading, during the First World War, his battalion of soldiers in the Vosges.
Upon his return, he gives new life to religious art by creating the Ateliers d'Art Sacré.
