  • Artist Biography
    • Born in the northern French town of Roubaix in 1898, Henri Joseph Delvarre would become a painter of landscape and figurative subjects. In 1916 he enrolled at the Ecole Nationale des Arts Industriels in Roubaix where he would win numerous prizes and medals for his work. In 1923 he was invited for the first time to show his work professionally exhibiting at the Salon de la Societe des Artists Roubaisiens, a venue where he would continue to show until 1967. The late 1920’s and early 1930’s would see him gaining a reputation on a local scale but in 1935 he became known nationally through his inclusion in the exhibition of the Salon des Artists Francais in Paris. In 1939 he joined the French army but upon the invasion of France he joined the resistance in battalion Action 40. He, along with his brother Jacques, was involved in a number of sabotage operations until his capture by the Germans in 1944. Upon his release at the end of the war he returned to painting and for the next thirty years would paint and exhibit widely throughout France. Henri Joseph Delvarre died in the town of Lille in 1974.
