Jean-Claude Picot was a French painter known for using strong colors to portray everyday objects and scenes with his own “joie de vivre” sensibility. Picot studied the artworks of fellow French artists and Fauvist painters Maurice de Vlaminck, André Derain, and Henri Matisse. All of their creations prioritized the use of distinct textures, colors, and strokes over realistic qualities. Born in France in the year 1933, Picot became a full-time professional artist in 1956. He continued to uphold the artistic tradition of French landscape painters until his death in August 2020. (Artlex.com)
