Jean Xceron
Jean Xceron (1890-1967) was a Greek-American artist known for his structural geometric paintings. Xceron immigrated from Greece to American at 14 years old. He studied academic techniques at the Corcoran School of Art but became inspired by avant-garde movements in New York and Paris. Xceron�s work underwent many transformations over the course of his career, but his paintings are most characterized by their geometric forms and influences varying from Cubism, De Stijl, and Dada. During his lifetime, he worked as an art critic, a muralist for the WPA, and a security guard at the Guggenheim Museum, where he gained the favor of director Hilla Rebay. His work can be found in the collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Guggenheim Museum.
