Jean Fusaro
(source: estades.com) Jean Fusaro was born in Marseille. He spent his youth at La Croix-Rousse and lives today in Lyon. His parents loved theatre, concert, and opera. They used to take their sons to visit Lyons museums every Sunday afternoon.

Jean Fusaro studied at the Beaux-Arts de Lyon from 1941 to 1946. He got acquainted with Andre Cottavoz and Jacques Truphemus, among others. In 1948, he exhibited for the first time at the Chapel of the Lycee Ampere in Lyon with the Sanziste group, including his friends Andre Cottavoz, James Bansac, Jacques Truphemus, and Pierre Coquet.

Sanzism, an art expression between figurative and abstract, wanted to decompartmentalize traditional art and reject impressionism, fauvism, and cubism. Hence its provocative name sansisme.

In the early years of the new French figurative painting, Jean Fusaro was busy but struggled. These were times of hardship, and he had to take on odd jobs.

Gradually, his notoriety increased, and he received numerous awards.

He was a quintessential artist in what is referred to as LEcole de Lyon alongside Andre Cottavoz and Jean Couty. In 1953, he received the Feneon prize, and in 1957, the prize of the city of Marseille.

HHis ethereal style of soft, barely glazed colors is popular in Japan. His work has been exhibited regularly since the 1970s. Internationally renowned artist Jean Fusaroâs art has been shown in various countries: Switzerland, Luxembourg, England, and the United States. From 1990 to 2010, he dedicated himself to mural painting, creating 19 wall paintings for the Church of Saint-Jacques-des-Arrets in the Lyon diocese.

Jean Fusaro is an indisputable master of French figurative painting. His technique is reminiscent of Raoul Dufy or Pierre Bonnard.

He interprets landscapes with a mainly new range of colors. Andre Cottavoz said he has a smooth and exquisite technique. He is anti-decorative, that is to say, that there is not a color not being a function of light. His romantic oils on canvas reveal a joyous world with a certain innocence and a feeling of tension emerging in tormented skies or threatening suns.

In November 2017, Jean Fusaro, young and playful as ever, was awarded the medal of Chevalier des Arts et Lettres.
