Armand Henri Leroux (b 1948) was born in Bordeaux, France on July 31, 1948. A pupil of his father, artist Claude Leroux, Armand learned the art of drawing at an early age. At 15 years old, his father realized his exceptional artistic gift and began encouraging him to be an oil painter. With his talent, Leroux was accepted to one of the prestigious French art schools referred to as École des Beaux-Arts. While in school he became the protégé of the well-known art teacher Gaston Marty, famous for his theater sets for the Opera de Paris and the Grand Theatre de Bordeaux.
Leroux often spent his days wandering alone along the docks of Bordeaux painting the architectural motifs of the “Empire” stone bridge on the river Garonne. Another artist who painted the same subject was Andre Lhote. Soon after graduation Leroux became one of the most diligent painters of the banks of the river Seine and the street life scenes in Paris. Very quickly between the Cote d’Azur and Paris his style became very similar to that of Luigi Loir and Jean Beraud.
Considered one of France’s rising young talents, Leroux is a prolific painter.
