Auguste Herbin produced a thematically rich body of work that included still lifes, portraits and landscapes. He was also versatile stylistically, drawing on influences from Impressionism, Fauvism, Cubism and abstraction. In 1901 he went to Paris, then the centre of the international avant-garde. After 1910, through his contact with Picasso and Juan Gris, Cubism manifest itself in his work and later, in about 1925, he turned to abstraction. Herbin was a founder member of the Abstraction-Création (1931) group and the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles (1947), and a prominent name in geometric abstract painting. In his later years, the painter Geneviève Claisse was Herbin’s assistant and made a catalogue raisonné of his work.
