Biography

Auguste Herbin was a French painter who worked in many styles before settling on abstraction. Early in his career, he worked in the postimpressionist, fauvist, cubist, then New Objectivist styles. Herbin abandoned figurative painting in 1927, shortly before he developed the Abstraction-Creation movement, which emphasized pure geometric shapes and bright colors. His artwork can be seen as a bridge between the Cubist movement and post-war geometrical abstract painting.
