Andre Francois
Born in 1915 in Hungary which is now part of Romania. In 1934 he studied with A. M. Cassandre at school in Paris. By 1945 he had acquired a growing reputation with French, English and American magazines as a humorist artist. And then he was producing children’s books, posters and stage designs. By the early 1960s he was working mainly on painting, sculpture, and occasionally posters, etchings and covers for the New Yorker magazine.
