Georges de Feure (French painter, 1868-1928)

Georges de Feure was an important Art Nouveau painter and lithographer who also designed furniture. Of Belgian/Dutch origin, Georges de Feure arrived in Paris in 1890 under his real name of Georges Joseph Van Sluijters, to study with Jules Chéret. At the turn of the twentieth century, many progressive artists and designers in Europe experienced a growing imperative to create a new visual language which broke away from the styles of the past and expressed something quintessentially modern. They wished to create a new art for new times. The result was the Art Nouveau (literally, “New Art”) movement. Georges de Feure was a leading French artist and designer working in these avant garde circles.
