Suzanne Humbert (1913-1952) was a well-known French painter and lithographer. She initially studied law but took up art instead, studying in Paris at the Academie Julian 1933-34, and for another two years at the Academie Colarossi and Academie de la Grande Chaumiere 1935-36. She entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in 1937 to study lithography in the atelier of Espagnat and Jaudon and subsequently won a prize in the Prix de Rome. She had met the artist Edouard Vuillard in 1936 and became his friend, pupil and ultimately his companion. He was a considerable influence on her own work as an artist. She became a member of the independent Salon d'Automne on the recommendation of Vuillard, and also exhibited at the Salon des Tuileries. The Redfern Gallery in London showed her paintings and prints regularly. Her work is held in a number of public collections in France, the UK and elsewhere.
