André François

André Farkas

1915 (Temesvar, Austria-Hungary, now Timişoara, Romania) – 2005 (Grisy-les-Plâtres, France)

François studied with Cassandre and then worked in his studio. He was a close friend of Searle’s, as well as collaborating with him. When working with Prévert, they used to meet in a café to discuss the text and images for a children’s book that at the same time referred subversively to the then German occupation of France.
