Raoul UBAC

Belgium/France (1910-1985)

Raoul Ubac was a multitalented artist born in Belgium. Associated to the Nouvelle Ecole de Paris, Ubac discovered Andre Breton’s first surrealism manifest in 1929, and at the beginning of 1930, he started to meet the group in the workshops of Montparnasse. He became a prolific artist, participating periodically to private and public commissions. He collaborated with André Breton and René Magritte and frequented intellectuals and artists such as Paul Eluard, Raymond Queneau or Georges Braque. Today, his heritage can be seen at Saint-Paul de Vence where he realized a stained glass and way of the cross for Maeght Foundation chapel. He is also showcased in museums of France and Europe.
