Louis Cane – February 02 – April 07 2o12
Louis Cane was born in Beaulieu-sur-Mer in 1943. He began his studies at l’Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Nice in 1961 and continued with the same subject at l’Ecole Supérieure in Paris. This same year, he was awarded a national diploma in interior architecture. Up to 1968, he studied at l’Ecole Supérieure des Beaux Arts in Paris. He consequently gained a residency in painting from the Prix de Rome. He participated in the ‘May 1968’ protests, where he was also the head of the popular poster department of decorative arts. As well as painting, Cane also took part in the foundation of an art review magazine called ‘Peinture, Cahiers, Théoriques’. In 1970, he moved into a new atelier on the rue de Charenton and began working on broken canvases. In 1981, he moved again to another atelier on the Rue Saint-Maur, where the following year, he would return to working with sculpture. He also gave two conferences explaining his field of activity, the first at l’Institut d’Art in Paris and then in 82, the Beaux-Arts. Cane has also worked on demand, in 1986 taking on a monumental task of a public fountain: la Fontaine du Déluge. He also did the decoration for C.E.S. de Peyrolle. His works have been displayed internationally as well as nationally.
