The Artist’s Timeline: Clovis Trouille

Clovis TrouilleCamille Clovis Trouille was born October 24, 1889 in La Fère, France, and died September 24, 1975 in Paris, France. One of the lost Surrealists, Trouille has become not much more than a footnote in history. For Trouille, joining the Surrealist movement was purely for exposure, and he rarely participated in Surrealist events. Trouille’s art works are an incredible insight into the world he perceived around him, of the beauty and corruption.
