Biography and information
 
Paul Sérusier (FR. Paul Sérusier, 9 November 1864, Paris — 7 October 1927, Morlaix, finistère, France) is a French artist-symbolist, the founder and inspirer of the artistic group the Nabis. Sérusier met Paul Gauguin in 1888, wrote a sketch of "Talisman" in his recommendations and brought this work to friends as a guideline to search for new artistic truth. Sérusier, charismatic, compelling and brilliantly educated, gathers young artists group "Nabi". He later wrote treatises on drawing and painting and teaches art theory at the Academy Ranson.

Features the artist Field: Paul Sérusier, bachelor of philosophy and mathematics, looking for in painting spiritual ideal, which could be reduced to simple formulas and figures. It remains true to the Breton landscapes and inhabitants, writes here of landscapes and figure compositions, finds the meditative, symbolic, magical and mythological meaning in the harmony of colors and lines. Of all Abidov it is technically and coloristic deeper conception of art, inherited from Gauguin. And more than any other justifies the title of "prophet" (Hebrew "Nabi"): interested in theosophy, travels to the Benedictine monastery of Beuron in Germany in search of "the sacred action" and ideal proportions.

Known Field pattern of ceruse: "Talisman", "Witchcraft (the Sacred forest", "Melancholia", "Rain", "Portrait of Bernard in Florence".
