French, 20th century, male.

Born 1932, in Châteaudun.


From 1956, Guillou studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and in 1957 was awarded the Prix de Rome for painting. He then exhibited at the Salon de la Jeune Peinture, and at the Salon de Mai. From 1966, the forceful introduction of action into his painting heralded the appearance of the moving figure, swept along by uncontrollable impulses.
