Geometric Abstractions


March 17th - April 21st, 2017

Richard Norton Gallery presents an exhibition of colorful, Mid-Century geometric abstractions by Georges Maurice Cloud. Cloud was born in Brittany, France in 1909. He studied art and design in Escoublac and La Baule. In the 1930s, Cloud attended the Beaux-Arts Academy in Paris. Cloud worked professionally as an architect and designer in both Paris and Brittany, and designed numerous Modern houses, interiors, tapestries and hand-crafted pieces of furniture. An accomplished painter, he also completed numerous mural and advertising commissions. Cloud painted decorative frescoes and designed furniture for many of the famed French transatlantic ocean liners, such as the S.S. Ile de France and the Normandie. Cloud exhibited his work at the Salon des Sur-Independants and at other venues throughout France. He died in 1973.
