Post Impressionist, André Wilder follows the courses of the School of Decorative Arts in the workshop of J. L. Gérôme. Attached to Impressionism, he is influenced by Claude Monet and Maxime Maufra whom he rubs shoulders.
He exhibited in Paris at the Salons of the National Society of Fine Arts, Salons d'Automne and Tuileries.
His first major solo exhibition took place in 1904 at the Bernheim Gallery. The city of Paris buys her canvas "The Poissy Bridge".
He will also exhibit internationally in New York, London, Rotterdam, Brussels, Zurich, Barcelona, ??San Francisco, Riga and Tokyo.
Brittany was his great source of inspiration but he also visited, on several occasions, Belgium and Holland, whose light attracts him.
