Jean Jansem is the most important Armenian artist of the 20th Century. Born in Turkey, Jansem’s family fled to Greece in 1922 and arrived in France in 1931. He began to paint from the age of eleven, studying in his late teens at the academies of Montparnasse and the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs. Jansem’s early work is characterized by his mother and child heroes, garnering the name ‘Le Miserablist’ (loosely translated as an artist of unfortunate people). As he matured his subject matter increasingly reflected the influences of Brueghel and Goya.
