“Eitel is a master who conveys to us through his subtle and harmonious compositions his Joie de vivre as well as his quiet dreams. Eitel’s vision is that af a poet-painter”

Born in Paris in 1926, from an Alsatian family, Jacques Eitel was a professor of painting at Paris University.

He began studying at evening school and emerged at the end of 1945 from celebrated “Ecol Boulle”, as a wood sculptor. He, then, studied at the Art Academy and began painting. In 1946, he exhibited for the first time at Montparnasse 80 Salon. He obtains the Odilon Lesur Adrian Prize. Since then, he was partecipated in the big Parisian salons. During the following years, he travelled to Provence, Italy and Spain.

He married Yolande Ardissone, herself now a famous artist, in 1950, and in 1952, their daughter Florence was born. Herself also a well established painter now.

Eitel has also been involved in film making and won a third prize in a National amateur contest in 1951, and, two years later, produced a short color movie: "La Chanson de Roland" for children.
