Françoise Gilot

b. 1921

Françoise Gilot is a French painter. Gilot came of age as an artist in the early 1940s, a member of the School of Paris, and has been pursuing a bold, Modernist vision in her paintings and prints ever since. Ranging from representational and narrative to entirely abstract, her compositions evince influences from Cubism and Fauvism. Gilot focuses equally on the structure of her compositions and the visual and emotional resonance of color as she does on the subjects animating them, including her family and memories, mythology, and the forces of nature, time, and space.
