Raymond Abner (1924-1999)arrives in London in 1945, where he takes lessons at the St Martin's school until 1947. Encouraged by Daniel Wildenstein, whose gallery is located not far from the school, he dedicates himself fully to painting. In 1947 he moves to Paris and works regularly at the “Académie Julian” and “La Grande Chaumière” where he meets the grandson of Matisse, who presents him his grandfather. At that time Matisse is confined to bed and works on the stained glass windows of the Vence Chapel. This meeting is very important but it is with Fernand Léger, in 1948, that his real commitment as a painter will definitively be confirmed. Abner presents himself to Léger saying: "Mr. Léger, I don't like your paintings. This is why I come to learn from you." The true style of Abner will then reveal itself at the master’s atelier at Pigalle. Léger was not only a great painter, but also a great teacher; it is with him that Abner will learn how to think big and draw. He gets initiated in reporting volumes, lines, and colors. The master’s example and lessons will strengthen him and be the basis of his own artistic style.
