DEATH OF JEAN CARZOU
01 September 2000


Armenian-born artist Garnik Zouloumian, called Jean Carzou, died in Marsac-sur-l'Isle, Dordogne region, on August 12th 2000 at 93.

Born in Alep, Syria, Carzou arrived in Paris in 1924 to complete his studies in architecture. Frequenting the Montparnasse area, he decided to devote his time to drawing and painting and worked as a theatre decorator.

Considered as one of the best painters working in France, Carzou produced Surrealist compositions under the influence of Cubism during the 1930s and illustrated many books. he took part in numerous exhibitions in France and abroad, notably in the Venice and Sao Paulo Biennials and painted a 600 square metre surface in the church of the convent of the Presentation in Manosque, which was inaugurated in 1990.

Strangely enough, Carzou, who became a member of the French Academy of Fine Arts in 1982, considered Cézanne and Picasso as responsible for the degradation of modern art.
