The painters embraced by the term include Jean Aujame (1905–65), Jean-Louis Boussingault, Maurice Brianchon (1899–1979), Charles Dufresne, André Dunoyer de Segonzac, Raymond Legueult (1898–1978), and Luc-Albert Moreau (1882–1948). There were ties of friendship among several of them, but they did not form a group or movement.
