The work shows influences of Cubism, like Pablo Picasso and George Braque.

Alain Béral (b. 1947)
At the age of 14, Alain Béral enrolled at the school of fine arts in his hometown Douai. He learned from experienced masters such as the ceramicist and sculptor Norbert Treca, the painter Robert Bouquillon, as well as the internationally renowned sculptor Emile Morlaix. His work comprises portraits, still lives, landscapes and sculptural works. Alain Béral blurs the border between surrealism and 'intuitism'.
