André Bauchant was a self-taught painter who found his medium at the age of 45 and exhibited his works for the first time at 48. Before he began his fine art career, Bauchant served as a draftsman in World War I, where his proclivity for visual representation allowed him to also take on responsibilities in charting and rangefinding. His early paintings frequently featured floral arrangements, landscapes, mythological scenes, and historical figures—testimonies to his literary passions and experience as a horticulturist. He was known to use unglazed, vivid colors in his work. His first great supporter was Le Corbusier, and he was quickly scouted by Wilhelm Uhde to exhibit with the “Sacred Heart” group, comprised of European self-taught artists. Later in his career, Bauchant designed tapestries, in addition to sets and costumes for ballet impresario Sergei Diaghilev.
