André Barbier


André Barbier (1883 - 1970) - Olive Tree on a Rocky Prominence

At the age of twenty, Barbier left Arras and settled in Paris at the Quai aux fleurs, and in the same year, 1903, he exhibited four paintings at the nineteenth Salon des Independants.
As with so many painters of his day, he adopted on itinerant lifestyle, travelling between Paris, the outskirts of Paris, the Normandy coast and the Riviera, to say nothing of his trips abroad, especially to Italy
