Artist, painter, lacquerer, glassmaker, French decorator.
Born in 1907, Pierre Paulin entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Lyon at a very young age.
He began his career as a decorator with murals.
In 1936, he tackles Laque in his studio on Ile Barbe.
He is able to thicken his trees or some plants to accentuate the contrasts and its funds are frequently treated with gold leaf.
Screens and large panels will become the daily life of his work.
Paulin says he is influenced by the symbolists but he also admires Fra Angelico, Nicolas Poussin or Maurice Denis.
His figurative representations draw heavily on a dreamlike mythology and we also find the influence of the Far East, which was very fashionable at that time.
The work is very long and he sometimes spends three months on the same panel.
From his first exhibitions, he received prizes in both Lyon and Paris.
He collaborated with great designers such as Sornay and continued his creations with public or private commissions.
