Show Summary Details


French, 20th century, male.

Born 1925, in Nice.


Charles Giaume studied at the École des Beaux-Arts, Lyons, and has been painting since 1954. He travelled in South America before dividing his time between Lyons and the Balearic Islands. His early painting was somewhat influenced by Surrealism, but was later characterised by the enlargement of details, sometimes in the style of Gnoli, but in much more idealised forms.
