'Les Gravures du Jean-Emile Laboureur' on exhibit at Childs Gallery

Released: December 24, 2015

Jean Emile-Laboureur was born in Nantes, France in 1877. He arrived in Paris in 1895 and was captivated by the Academie Julian and quickly immersed himself in the art scene.

Warshaw marries local imagery and California iconography to his vision of Cubism, creating something that was sometimes called “cowboy cubism”.
