Rochechouart Boulevard in Paris - Circa 1945

André Boyer was a French painter, illustrator and cabinetmaker-decorator, born in Paris on April 15, 1909 and died in Courbevoie (Hauts-de-Seine) on June 2, 1981. Son of a single mother, he trained and worked as a cabinetmaker well into the 1940s, creating Art Deco-style furniture, which is very sought-after nowadays. Having alternated his career with painting for years, he devoted himself fully to painting from 1950. Pertaining to the New School of Paris, he was a regular painter in the Montmartre quarter, where he drew inspiration for many of his works. These stand out for their great strength and energy, and use of bold, heavy strokes in the style of Marcel Utrillo. Later, he depicted several scenes of the boulevards of Paris, set in the Belle Époque period. His works are highly sought after by collectors, especially in the United States.
