Paul Rebeyrolle (November 3, 1926 in Eymoutiers – February 7, 2005 in Côte-d'Or) was a French painter.

Life and works[edit]

As a child he had tuberculosis of the bone, which caused for long periods of immobility. Later he studied in Limoges and joined the French Communist Party. He ultimately broke with the party because of events related to the Hungarian Revolution of 1956.

His art is often concerned with landscapes, but is marked by violence and rage. He received praise from François Pinault, Jean-Paul Sartre, Michel Foucault[1] and others.

Where to see his works[edit]

Rebeyrolle has his own Museum, the "Espace Paul Rebeyrolle",[2] located near his birthplace, in Eymoutiers (30 miles east of Limoges).
