Swiss painter François Barraud
Although I'm not a huge fan of 20th century art I do occasionally come across an artist whose work I like, such as this one. Swiss painter François Barraud (1899-1934) was one of four artist brothers although François seems to have been the only one to establish any kind of reputation. He relocated to Paris in the early 1920s where he died of tuberculosis at the age of 35.
