Notes: Jean Carzou (born Karnik Zouloumian, 1907–2000) was an Armenian-French painter and illustrator. He was educated in Cairo before moving to Paris in 1924, where he studied art and architecture. He started working as a theater decorator but quickly realized he preferred drawing and painting. Carzou labors alone, a witness to his times, uninfluenced by passing fashions. But like his contemporaries, Carzou belonged to a generation that witnessed the horror of the World War. Carzou’s style went through a period where the artist tryed to remind the world of the horrors of the past. Enigmatic figures, encased in iron armour, often appear out of nowhere and move in a landscape between dream and harsh reality – half-fantastic, half-real worlds offer a kind of familiar strangeness similar to that of dreams. Carzou was elected a member of the Institut de France, Académie des beaux-arts in 1977. He was also awarded the National Order of Merit of France.
