Henry Cayon

[France] (b 1879/ d ?)

The first part of the life of Henry Cayon , his student days and the Schools he attended, are somehow forgotten in the Net....after 2 or 3 hours digging,  I only have data about him from 1911 on.. in that year he received some monetary help to travel...Cayon began by traveling through Mauritania, Senegal , Niger and Sudan...during some years , he traveled  also from Canada to Mexico, The French Antilles , Morocco ,etc ... in 1924 he returned to Senegal where he was nominated special correspondent of the Illustrated Magazine "Annales Coloniales" , to cover a French Parliamentarian Visit... during all these years he always continued to paint , receiving at the same time new and different influences... He is part of the group of  Painters known as Africanists ("Les Peintres Africanistes" )...
