Roger Decaux (1919-1995)

Writer and educator, Roger Decaux is educated in art history and philosophy. He was a teacher, a journalist in the field of art and philosophy, and an art critic. He lived long in Paris, where he interacted with many artists, participated in art and philosophy programs and magazines, taught art history, and hosted workshops. He was very close to the painter Gino Severini. But what most shaped his life was his ability to unleash his open and cultivated mind to creativity. Winner of numerous prizes: Galilee Prize, Stanislas Academy Prize in Nancy and Trio Prize from the Belgian Ministry of Culture, he has translated into his work an enlightened and corrosive vision of our society. Its notoriety goes far beyond the national framework.
