    René Perrot was a student at the National School of Decorative Arts between 1932 and 1936 and began as a poster artist but ceased his activity during World War II.

    From 1932, he became interested in wall art decoration after meeting Jean Lurçat. René Perrot is the inventor of a wall decoration process, nitrogravure on Comblanchien stone.

    His anti-militarism led him to compose two albums on the First World War, one prefaced by Roland Dorgelès, the other by François Barthille. During the war, he participated with Paul Flamand and his team in the Jeune France movement. Then, in 1942, he became responsible for the mission of the National Museum of Popular Arts and Traditions, where he toured France with the museum sites.

    At the end of the war, he learned the profession of cardboard maker in Felletin, then in Aubusson in Creuse.

    From 1945, he devoted himself to tapestry, and from 1946 participated in the first exhibition of French tapestry at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris. It will produce more than 500 cartons, executed by great factories, Rivière des Borderies, Ateliers Pinton, Tapisserie d’Aubusson. He continued all his life to engrave, on wood and in etching, and was also a recognized ceramist.

    He has participated in numerous personal or collective exhibitions in France and abroad, and in numerous art fairs. You can see his works at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, at the Mobilier National, at the Museum of hunting, history and nature in the Loire Valley of the Château-museum of Gien, at the Museum of Art and History of Dreux.
