After the devastation of the First World War, Lucien left his provincial home in the autumn of 1919 to find his fortune among the lively Parisians in the heart of Montmartre. Not concerning himself with producing “art”, he beautifully captured the spirit if Paris between the wars while enjoying a truly Bohemian existence. Genin’s works in all their forms, perfectly convey these eclectic and friendly characters of the city and he was so well loved that one collector said “separate me from my Vlaminck, my foujita, my Derain, my Dunoyer de Segonzac and I will survive…but my Genin, never!”.
