Born in Paris January 27, 1905. Pupil of Lucien Simon at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts from 1925 to 1932. During this period he discovers the Fauves and Utrillo, but the influence is short lasting. He meets Rohner, Humblot, then Lasne, who work with him for a year's time. Then new influences--Picasso, Chirico, La Fresnaye, Seurat, Ingres--make themselves felt in the work of the four friends who then formed the group "Forces Nouvelles." Each of the four painters, united under the auspices of Henri Héraut in a common manifestation, has since followed his own personal direction in art. Jannot's work has been influenced as much by realistic painters (exhibition held in 1934--Exposition des Maîtres de la Réalité) as he has been by the works of Masaccio, Piero della Francesca and Uccello (exhibition of 1935). Nevertheless, it has retained its personal accent.
