La Fresnaye, Roger de
Roger de la Fresnaye (July 11, 1885-Nov. 27, 1935) was a French cubist painter. La Fresnaye came from an aristocratic family whose home, the Chateau de La Fresnaye, is in Falasie, France. He studied academic painting at the Academie Julian and at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Later he studied at the Academie Ranson under Maurice Denis and Paul Serusier, who greatly influenced his work. He spent 2 years as a member of the Section dÕOr group of artists where he demonstrated his individual response to cubism. His work was known for its decorative elements rather than the typical structural feel of other cubist's work. In his later life he contracted tuberculosis and was too exhausted to paint regularly. He left cubism and went for a more spatial and linear style until his death in 1925.
