ANDRÉ FAVORY
1889-1937

André Favory werd in 1889 geboren in Parijs. Hij studeerde aan de academie Julian, waar hij Jean Metzinger en Marie Laurencin ontmoette. Ook ging hij om met André Lhote en onderging hij onder invloed van Cézanne. In het begin van zijn carrière schilderde Favory kubistisch. In 1909 had hij zijn eerste expositie en hij besloot in 1913 zijn beroep van het schilderen te maken.

Door het uitbreken van de Eerste Wereldoorlog werd hij gemobiliseerd en pas na de oorlog kon hij zich verder aan het schilderen wijdde. Als gevolg van de oorlog ging hij naturalistische schilderen.

In 1922 maakte Favory verschillende reizen naar België en bestudeerde hij de werken van Peter Paul Rubens. Hij schilderde daarna veel naakten, grote groepen van 'gevulde' baaders en portretten van vrouwen. Hij exposeerde in de Salon des Tuileries (1923-1924), de Salon d'Automne 1921 t/m 1923 en op vele andere plaatsen o.a. Galerie Druet en Galerie Berthe Weill in Parijs en in Galerie Sélection en Galerie Le Centaur in Brussel.

De kunstjournalist Louis Vauxcelles, die zeer negatief over het kubisme schreef, was een grote bewonderaar van Favory.

Door een ziekte kon Favory vanaf 1927 niet meer schilderen. Hij overleed in 1937 in Parijs.


André Favory
1889 – 1937


Favory was born in Paris in 1889. He attended the Académie Julian, where he became acquainted with Metzinger, Lhote, and Marie Laurencin.
As was true for many of the Cubists, Cezanne was an early and important influence.

Favory painted in a cubist style for the first few years of his career, he began exhibiting works in 1909. By 1913 he had decided to make painting his career, but in 1914 he was mobilized for war, which interrupted his work until he began exhibiting again in 1919.


Favory’s experiences and the passing of time had changed his understanding of art. The realities of the war had given him a deeper appreciation of nature and life; he grew dissatisfied with the intellectualism of the Cubist movement. In 1922 he made many excursions to Belgium where he intensively studied the art of Peter Paul Rubens, whose work exerted a tremendous influence. Favory became much more of a colorist, he began painting nudes, large groups of extravagantly voluptuous bathers, and female portraits in a very sensual, lyrical style. He exhibited regularly at the Paris and Brussels Salons, including the Salon des Tuileries in 1923-1924, Salon d’Automne from1921-1923, the Nouveau Salon in 1921, at the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts in 1922.
In the 1920’s Favory’s works were shown at numerous galleries in Paris and in Brussels, London, Amsterdam, New York, and Tokyo.


These included Galerie Druet, Galerie Berthe Weill, Galerie Sélection and Galerie Le Centaur (both in Brussels). The most influential critics such as Louis Vauxcelles very well received Favory’s paintings; he was regarded as an extremely important artist, one of the masters of his generation. Favory contracted a crippling illness, which put an early end to his painting career, he had to stop working five years before his death. He died at the age of 48 in 1937.


Favory is represented in many museums in France, including the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. Favory presented a painting to the Museum of Modern Western Art in Moscow in 1927; the painting is now in the Hermitage.
