Francis Gruber was a French painter and founder of the Nouveau Réalisme school.
Born in Nancy, he was the son of stained glass artist Jacques Gruber and he first exhibited at the age of 18.
While other artists were becoming more and more abstract, he preferred to paint human figures that were highly sculpted.
Gruber was influenced by Hieronymus Bosch and Albrecht Dürerand the Lorraine engraver Jacques Callot and became friends with the Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti.
He died in Paris.
