Guillaume Pujolle
The Astronomer, 1946

Guillaume Pujolle, a cabinetmaker and then a Customs employee in Metz, returned to live in his native South-Western France in 1926 but had to be hospitalised for mental health problems in Toulouse. His first known drawings date from 1935. He made his own brushes and at first used pharmaceutical products. The source images that inspired him are partly enriched with whirling shapes. Dr Gaston Ferdière made these drawings known to Jean Dubuffet and the Surrealists.
