The late artist Gerard Vieillevie was born in 1939 in Queue Les Yvelines (near Paris).
Celebrated for his work in sculpture and mosaic, Vieilleville, a student of the classics and former student of the renowned National High School of Decorative Artists in Paris, was largely inspired by the art of the Post-Impressionists. True to the tradition of principal Post-Impressionist painters such as Van Gogh, the work of Vieillevie was composed of still lifes, luxurious gardens and flora.
A recipient of the International Lion's Club Gold Medal for Painting (1974), Vieillevie's work has been exhibited in Asia, Europe and the United States. His bas-reliefs can be viewed in various hotels in Paris, Cannes, Strasbourg, Lille and St. Tropez.
Following his death in 1993, a major art exposition at the Katia Granoff Gallery was dedicated to his memory.
