    Art Brokerage: Park West Artist: Jean-Michel Coulon French Artist: b. 1920-2014. Jean-Michel Coulon was born in Bordeaux in 1920, and at a very early age showed an innate talent for drawing. As a teenager, his encounter with Picasso was decisive. In 1944, his younger brother, a member of the French Resistance, was shot by the Gestapo at age 19. Coulon then decided to devote his life to painting. In 1949 he was invited to participate in a group exhibition at the Jeanne Bucher Gallery with Braque, Picasso, Klee, Lanskoy, de Staël, Vieira da Silva, Kandinsky, and from the age of 28, he began to show his work regularly at art fairs, especially at the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles. In 1950, Rothko, Soulages, Vieillard, Deyrolle, visited his solo exhibition at the Jeanne Bucher Gallery. The same year, Coulon participated in an exhibition in New York at the Sidney Janis Gallery where fifteen French and fifteen American painters (including Ernst, de Kooning, Pollock, and Tobey) were hung side by side for the first time. In 1952, he participated in a group show at MoMA in New York. Listings wanted.
