    Biography

    Influenced in his youth by the art of Paul Gauguin and Paul Cézanne, Lhote exhibited with the Cubist group at the controversial 1911 Salon des Indépendants and at the much debated 1912 Salon d'Automne.

    In the 1920s, once art critics started to perceive Picasso and Braque's 'pure' synthetic Cubism as an inevitable, but unsustainable step in the development of art, Lhote came to be regarded as one of the leading exponents of analytical Cubism; this affirmed his position among those French Cubist painters who transformed Picasso and Braque's cerebral discoveries into personal, diversified and surprising new artistic languages
