  • Pierre Vuitton (Verdun 1880 to 1962 in Paris), comes from a wealthy family of merchants. In 1.WK, both physically and psychologically wounded severely, he was never coming back to the regular life. After several stays in sanitariums and mental hospitals, he moved to Paris in 1920 majority. Well morphine and alcohol dependence, he lived as a casual laborer, and the rare sale of his pictures, in very poor conditions. His first works were probably during the war years, later he developed real "time-excesses" in which he reportedly spent several days with paint without eating or sleeping.
