Augustin François Guille
called «Archiguille»
Probably the most talented painter of his generation
as announced by André Malraux
(1901- 1976), Archiguille has long enjoyed a
prestigious following among international private
collectors and art connoisseurs.
Following a childhood during the war years in
the south of France Archiguille was drawn to
painting, as a means of expression of his
deeper emotions and experiences. He began,
when at school, to be fascinated with the letters
of the alphabet, which led in turn to forays
into the oriental art of calligraphy. His time
spent among the well-known painters of that
époque in Montmartre, their mutual trials and
errors in experimenting with new mediums and
techniques and his meeting with George
Braque were all key factors in the development
of his works.
In the years 1958 - 1967 Archiguille founded
the school of Transfiguration – capturing of the
spiritual or otherworldly vision of earthly things
and the relaying of that sense of the mystical to
the viewer. He has moved from the pragmatic
young figurative painter to the years of
«sagesse» where the richness and emotional
eloquence of his works can only be compared
to the greatest painters of the 20th century.
His art works can be found in collections of
François Mitterrand, Jacqueline Kennedy, Coco
Chanel, Ari Onassis, Barbara Bush, the Emperor
of Japan, the King of Morocco, Sophia
Loren, Robert De Niro, the King of Spain,
French Mission at the United Nations in
Geneva, David Rockefeller and Barbara
Streisand.
