Charley Garry, born in Paris in 1891, preferred to paint Parisian nightlife, especially the attractive, provocative dancers who performed in the many music halls and nightclubs in the city. His subjects also include circus women, ballet dancers, nudes and young, fashionable women enjoying themselves in one of the many Parisian nightlife spots. In 1912 he made his debut at the Salon. In 1925 he decorated the ceiling of the famous Parisian Brasserie Lipp on Boulevard St. Germain with African scenes. He had gained knowledge of the African continent during a trip to equatorial Africa on behalf of the French Colonial Secretary. In the 1930s, like many other artists, he also designed posters and advertising posters.
