André Dunoyer de Segonzac was a French painter, draughtsman, and printmaker. He began painting in 1903, studying at various academies in Paris. Early in his career he went through a period of Cubist influence, but after World War I he became one of the leading proponents of the naturalistic tradition in a period dominated by anti-naturalistic tendencies. Segonzac’s oil paintings consist mainly of landscapes, still-lifes, and figure compositions. They are often somber in tone, executed in thick paint to emphasize the weight and earthiness of the forms. His watercolors and etchings, however, are more elegant and spontaneous, having a wider range of subject matter as well.
