Henri Cadiou

Henri Cadiou (26 March 1906, Paris – 6 April 1989) was a French realist painter and lithographer known for his work in trompe-l'œil paintings. He is credited with being a founder of the l’école de la réalité in 1949 (now called Mouvement Trompe-l'œil-réalité). The movement, a reaction against abstract art, became relevant at the Salon de Mai of 1960, where Cadiou exhibited paintings that were almost photorealistic. These paintings (in particular Shower Curtain and Electoral Panel) caused a stir in the artistic community.Cadiou’s trompe-l'œil paintings feature groups of large numbers of everyday objects depicted in a realistic style. He was also a painter of genre scenes.Due to renewed interest in precursors to contemporary hyperrealism, the group of painters associated with the “peintres de la réalité” have been seeing a contemporary resurgence, with recent exhibitions in Europe, Asia, and North America.
