Jean Miotte

Jean Miotte was born in Paris in 1926. He is one of the first generation of “informal” artists. He is often associated with the Lyrical Abstraction movement, with which he shares a taste for gesture and calligraphic form.

Miotte began his artistic career in the 1940s, studying at the Académie Julian in Paris. He was influenced by the work of other abstract artists of the time, such as Jean Dubuffet and Pierre Soulages. Miotte’s early work was characterized by its use of bold colors and gestural brushstrokes.

In the 1950s, Miotte began to develop his own unique style of Lyrical Abstraction. His paintings and drawings are characterized by their use of flowing lines, organic shapes, and vibrant colors. Miotte’s work is often described as being both expressive and lyrical.

Miotte has exhibited his work in major galleries and museums around the world. He is considered one of the most important French artists of the 20th century.
