Georges Hugnet

A bit of Dada-ism to brighten your day

Georges Hugnet
(1906-1974)
French //  Dada, Surrealism
Graphic Artist, Poet, Art Historian, Writer

Georges Hugnet (pronounced OON-yay) was a French born graphic artist. If he’s happened to slip under your art radar then you’re not alone.. I only just discovered his work by perusing some art blogs and instantly fell in love with his Collage / Dada style of art. He’s referenced as being a poet, critic, publisher, book binder, and rare-book dealer among other things. Hugnet made a little headway in the interwar Parisian art scene by collaborating with greats such as Picasso and Gertrude Stein. While not a big player – he certainly made a mark and its been great to re-visit some of his pieces here in this mini-gallery. I hope you like discovering his works as much as I did!

“Art has something to do with the achievement of stillness in the midst of chaos.”

― Saul Bellow
