Georges Henri Tribout (1884-1962)

Georges Henri Tribout was born in Paris, in 1884. He studied at the Université de Notre Dame in Boulogne, and attended the Académie Julian in 1904-1905. He exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants in 1909 and the Galerie Alligons in Paris. Tribout was included in the exposition of ceramics at “l’Exposition des Arts Décoratifs” in 1925, in Paris, and also designed posters, costumes, and theatrical sets. Manufacture de Sévres produced some of his ceramic designs. From 1930, Tribout became interested in architecture, forsaking gallery exhibitions, though he continued to paint in his distinctive cubist style. After his death, like many artists of his period, Georges Tribout was almost completely forgotten until his estate was sold in Paris in the 1980’s, when his paintings found a new and appreciative audience. He died in 1962.
