Claude Mancini, born on July 10, 1937 in Paris, was a contemporary French artist. His received traditional and classical training, first at the School of Applied Arts and then at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. However, his evolution as an artist was marked by the gradual abandonment of everyday material references. In doing so, his attention turned to the imaginary borrowing of spiritual philosophy and symbolism.
Having become a renowned artist and a talented illustrator, he exhibited in France and abroad since 1960, highlighting in particular his exhibitions in the Museum of the Old Charity of Marseille, the Museum of Modern Art in Seoul (pastels) and the Art Expo of New York. His works are on display in many private collections, museums and collections of the French State, among others, the City of Paris, the Orly airport or the Taiwan Museum of Art.
Mancini died in Illange, a small town in Lorraine, on June 23, 2013.
