Frederic Marius de Buzon (1879 -1958), French/Algerian

Born on 18 Sep 1879 in La Roque (Bayon sur Gironde) died in Algiers on 26 Nov 1958. He was a French painter with Algerian and Spanish origins (descendant of the famous painter Francisco de Goya). He studied art at the School of Fine Arts in Bordeaux and National School of Fine Arts in Paris. Student of Fenand Corman, Albert Maignan, Suzanne Valadon and Maurice Denis. He won his first art price in 1910 (Lefevre Glaice Maguellone prize) and later in 1911 (prize of the Salon of the French Artists). Marius de Buzon visited Macedonia in 1914, as mobilized French soldier. He produced several watercolors and drawings from the Macedonia front. After that he moved to Algiria (Kabylia). Until the end of his career, he will be mesmerized by the Algerian landscapes and exotic scenes. He will become one of the founders of the co-called School of Algiers, and later he will be teacher at the Art Academy in Algiers in the 1930s. During his career, he won many art prices. Море information about him can be found on the Wikipedia internet page: One example of his Macedonian works is the painting titled “Paysage en Macédoine 1923” sold by auction house Maison R&C, Marseille, France on 20 March 2018 (object number 62)

About Me

This lexicon is a result of my 15 years long period of researching & documenting the personalities and the artworks of the foreign painters, sculptors, illustrators, and photographers having visited different spots of the geographic territory of Macedonia, there having created works of art there over a 100-years long period i.e. between 1850-1950. Their presence and artwork in the Macedonian milieus represent a notable cultural heritage to the international linkage of the ethnic Macedonians as well as to all the ethnicities living in the picturesque territory of Macedonia and the cultures of modern-day countries spread over parts of the geographic territory of Macedonia. Witnessing the artistic contributions of the foreign artist, we are proud of their Macedonia-themed creative works and experiences. I believe that their artworks, having been inspired and created over the vast region of Macedonia, unite us all in these challenging times, and under the facts and the values of the artistic beauty.
