CV of Genevieve Naudin  
Painted furniture

Genevieve Naudin was born in Paris. She is a former pupil of "Les Arts Appliqués", "L'académie de Port-Royal", and IPEDEC in Paris.

She carries out many decorations for the theatre, which is the world of its childhood. Her father, directing a restaurant vis-a-vis "la Comédie Française", develops a cordial reception and original which attracts in its establishment all the actors of Paris.

From 1977 to 1980, with the Marigny theatre, she has been working with Roger Hart to the creation of the decorations of french serie "Au théâtre ce soir".

During the year 1981 she carries out decorations for the French Comedy under the direction of Jean Marquet.

The unforeseeable one occurs then : she loses the sight of an eye. During two years she will work very hardd in order to find a vision in relief. This work develops in her an increased perception of the colors. She is quite naturally brought to paint fabrics, which she will expose and sell during ten years.

During this time, allured by the magic of the circus and the voyage, she will accompany Alexis Gruss circus in round by 1985 to 1987, for which she will be an administrator. She will bring back of them several paints of clowns and the images to profusion.
