Camille Briand

Camille Bryen is a French painter, poet and engraver associated with Tachisme. After having debuted in the 1920's under the pseudonym Aristide, Bryen cosigns with Jean Arp, Marcel Duchamp and Francis Picabia the first "Dimensionist" manifesto, while being friends with several Surrealists, including Raoul Ubac. In 1948, along with Hans Hartung, Wols, Gérard Schneider and Georges Mathieu, exhibits in the first "Abstraction Lyrique" exhibition. After the 1950 book "Héréphile", he has decided to no longer write, painting until the end of his life. The "catalogue raisonné" of his works is published in 1975, two years before his death. In 2006, the exhibition "L'Envolée lyrique, Paris 1945-1956" features some of his paintings.
