Innocent, Franck

Franck Innocent was born on November 20, 1912 in Sahurs (Seine-Maritime) – 1983, Paris

A primal flicker of light is captured in Innocent’s paintings. It is the primal element elevating all his subjects into the sacred realm of art. From his flat rural landscape of Normandy, Innocent has brought the patience to wait for the right moment and immortalize this light in all of his paintings – He died in 1983 in Paris.
