Auguste Herbin PortraitAuguste Herbin, the son of a workman, was born in a small village near the Belgian border on 29 April 1882.

Before settling in Paris, where he first joined the Impressionists and later the Fauves, Herbin attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Lille from 1900 onwards. His studio was situated directly next to Braque's and Picasso's, allowing a close study of Cubism, which resulted in his first Cubist paintings in 1913.

In 1917 he moved on to an abstract, geometric phase before gradually discovering Constructivism. There was a short interruption in this development in 1922 when the painter briefly returned to figurative painting.

In 1929 Auguste Herbin was a co-founder of the "Salon des Surindépendants". Two years later he founded the artist association "Abstraction-Création" together with Vantongerloo with whom he published the group's Almanach until 1937.
