Description & Technical information

André Lhote was a prolific artist and theorist, who worked and exhibited regularly until the
1950’s.

After initially working in a Fauvist style, Lhote shifted towards Cubism and joined the Section d'Or group in 1912, exhibiting at the Salon de la Section d'Or alongside some of the fathers of modern art, including Gleizes, Villon, Duchamp, Metzinger, Picabia and La Fresnaye. This group of artists were in favour of a more decorative and accessible alternative to the celebrated Cubism of Picasso and Braque.
