YVES ALIX (French / 1890-1969)

Yves Alix was born in Fontainebleau. Alix studied at the Académie Julian, and then turned down a place at the Paris Beaux-Arts to study at the Académie Ranson, where the teachers included the Nabis artists Bonnard, Vuillard, Ker-Xavier Roussel, Maurice Denis, and Paul Sérusier. Painter, printmaker, and designer for the stage, Yves Alix made his first lithographs and engravings around 1930; like his friends Laboureur and Gromaire, Yves Alix was stylistically influenced by Cubism, mediated through André Lhote. There was a Retrospective of the art of Yves Alix at the Hôtel Donadeï de Campredon in Isle-sur-la-Sorgue to mark the centenary of his birth.
