DAYEZ, Georges
Born in Paris July 29, 1907. He began painting very young, frequented the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and worked notably in evening courses under the direction of the sculptors Arnold and Wlerick, a very lively atelier where he met Edouard Pignon. Afterwards followed a period of years of independent research, a part of the time devoted to manual labor, as an ordinary worker, then as technician in a printing establishment. He meets André Lhote, to whom he owes a great deal, and is influenced by Braque, Picasso, Matisse and others. He joins a movement which results in the formation of the Salon de Mai in 1945. Since 1948 he has been exhibiting regularly at the Salon d'Automne, at the Salon de Mai, where he is a member of the committee, at the Salon des Tuileries, as well as in numerous galleries in France and in other countries. Georges Dayez has also worked in engravings and in tapestry; he has executed a stained glass window and a monumental mosaic.
