Armant Point (1860 -1932), French / Algerian

Born in Algiers, 23.10.1861; died in Marlotte, Seine-et-Marne, March 1932. Armand Point was very well-known French Symbolist painter and designer. He began his career painting the Algerian scenes of his youth, rendering Orientalist subjects—such as markets and musicians—with a distinctive, unaffected precision. In 1888 he went to Paris to study at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts under Auguste Herst (b.1825) and Fernand Cormon. He exhibited at the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts from 1890. In 1893 he created an important Art group ‘Haute Claire’ near Fontainebleau, which was the center of the Symbolist movement and visited by most famous symbolists like Odilon Redon, Oscar Wilde, Stephane Mallarme and Stuart Merrill.  His paintings can be found in Museum D’Orsay in Paris. Armand Point visited Macedonia during the Great War in 1916 he has produced the watercolor “Porteuse d’eau Florina” sold by the auction house Ader Remy, Paris, France on 05.12.2007, (lot number 52).

About Me

Vlatko potpis s

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.
