Georges Mathieu, L
George Mathieu was born in 1921. I began with studying literature and philosophy but than switched to when he was twenty-one. He started with painting realistic landscapes and portraits then he developed a highly distinctive Abstract Expressionist personal style, which grew out of an emotionally driven, improvised and intuitive act of painting.
