Paul Charlemagne

Born 1892


Paul Charlemagne was born in Paris in 1892.


Charlemagne began to exhibit in 1923 and he won the Prix Blumenthal. He exhibited regularly at the Salon des Artistes Indépendants, the Salon des Tuileries, and the Salon d’Automne. He exhibited at Galeries J. Allard in 1928 in Paris and he was awarded Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur.


Charlemagne exhibited at Galerie d’Art Quartier Saint-Georges with Kees Von dongen, Marcel Vertes, André Dignimont, Jean Marembert and Moise Kisling. The exhibition was called “Le French Can Can de Tabarin.”


Charlemagne designed costumes for the theater, and designed ceramic for Manufacture de Sévres. He illustrated a book of poems by Baudelaire published in 1944.
Charlemagne’s paintings are expressive and colorful with angular construction typical of the moderns.


There was a monograph published on the artist in 1939 written by Jean-Daniel Maublanc.
