Max Papart was a French painter and printmaker. He is best known for his depictions of circus performers, birds, figures, still lifes, and landscapes in a colorful Cubist style. Papart’s work captured the joy of life through a sense of movement, cheerful hues, and lighthearted subject matter. Born on December 19, 1911 in Marseilles, France, the artist studied at the School of Fine Arts in Marseilles before moving to Paris in 1936, where he began exhibiting at the Salon des Indepedants. In the years 1969–1973, he taught printmaking at the University of Paris VIII in Vincennes. The artist died on August 29, 1994 in Paris, France. Today, Papart’s works are in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, and the National Gallery in London, among others.
