André Herviault

[France] (b 1884/d 1969)

I have tried for sometime to find the Educational data from André Herviault , but unfortunately I was unable to do it... The Artist is known to be an Africanist , so I only have information from the time he started his African Voyages..he made 8 travels to Africa between 1926 and 1960.. in each one of them he spent periods of time from a couple of months to 3 or 4 years...the first of these voyages , in 1926 , to the French Equatorial Africa was financed by a Scholarship, and the others were result of work he received from the Ministry of the Colonies and from the 'Alliance Française'..
I have to emphasize Herviault's work in the 1931 Paris Colonial Exposition with several posters and paintings for the Togo and Cameroon Pavilions...
