biography of Tobeen (Félix Bonnet)

Félix Elie Bonnet, painting under the pseudonym Félix Tobeen, was one of the cubists from the very beginning as a young painter in Paris. Like Gleizes and Le Fauconnier, he tried to reconcile traditional painting with Cubism. This led to a simplification of forms, while the subject remained clearly recognizable. In 1918 Tobeen abandoned his cubist experiments to opt for a controlled naturalism, sometimes bordering on realism, as a member of the group 'Jeunes Peintres Français'. He painted flower still lifes, landscapes and genre pieces. From 1930 his work was regularly shown at exhibitions by Huinck & Scherjon in Amsterdam and at the Nieuwenhuizen Segaar gallery in The Hague.
