Modern Art, The Artist's Timeline

The Artist’s Timeline: Clovis Trouille

Camille 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, participating rarely with Surrealist events. Trouille's art works are an incredible insight into the world he perceived around him, of the beauty and corruption. NB: The Artist's Timeline is an overview of selected art works which have been chosen as an introduction to an artist.

For Picasso, to succeed in Paris would be to conquer the world.
