Artistic Focus Born in Paris and considered a pioneer of Modern Art in America, Lucien Labaudt was largely a self-taught artist who was influenced in his early years by Cezanne and Seurat. He also was enlisted by the founders of the Post-Surrealist movement, Lorser Feitelson and Helen Lundeberg, who felt his style of painting complemented the group. Labaudt’s later work moved the artist further toward Post-Surrealism, with its structured and cubist-inspired melding of elements both real and imaginary.
• In 1906, after studying and working in Paris
and London, he moved to the United States, where he found work as a costume
designer and painted for pleasure.
