Margot De Broglie’s Life and Career
Margot De Broglie was born in Paris on April 10, 1881, to a family with a history of artistic talent. Margot’s mother, Alice, was an artist and her father, Eugène De Broglie, was a poet. Eugène was also a medical doctor and owned a chocolatier shop at L’Avenue de France. As a child, Margot was an aspiring actress and played the piano and sang in her parents’ shop to earn money for piano lessons. She also loved drawing and painted a few landscapes and animals as a child. She began her artistic career as a teenager when she started volunteering in a hospital to help with the care of the sick and disabled. At age 17, as part of her training as a doctor, Margot attended the School of Medicine in Paris to study under the direction of Jules Mandelbrot.
Margot De Broglie’s Work
After receiving her medical degree in 1902, Margot De Broglie became an art teacher at the Collège de France. It was here that she first studied under Paul Signac, a pioneer in the field of color photography. In 1906, while still an art teacher, Margot De Broglie became head of the drawing department at the Musée des Arts et Techniques d’Art et de Culture Orientales, commonly known as the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, which she ran for the next 11 years.
What Margot De Broglie was Known For
Known for her bold use of color and strong, often bold, lines, Margot De Broglie has been called the “pioneer of modern art in black and white.” In her works, she used bright primary colors to create powerful, emotional and psychological effects. She also painted landscapes, cityscapes and interiors and created several decorative arts and fauna designs. Her work served as a foundation for the art movement known as Neo-Impressionism.
How Margot De Broglie’s Work Influenced Other Painters
Many of the great painters of the 19th and 20th centuries, including Monet, van Gogh, Sisley and Gauguin, were influenced by Margot De Broglie’s work. Her paintings are particularly noted for their bold use of color and strong, often bold, line, which was typical of post- Impressionist painter’s work. The influence of Margot De Broglie can be seen in the work of many 20th-century painters, including Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. After her death, her colleagues at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs stored her paintings in a climate-controlled gallery, which they later transferred to the Louvre. Her work can still be seen there today.

The Margot De Broglie Papers, 1919 – 1969
The Margot De Broglie papers, which span the years 1919 to 1969, contain correspondence, drawings and paintings by the artist, handwritten notes, and other materials related to the museum, the gallery, and the artist’s family. The papers document the artist’s development as well as the history of modern art, including her relationship with fellow artists André Derain and Henri Matisse.
The Painter and Her Work
In her painting, Margot De Broglie’s style is characterized by the powerful use of color and powerful brushstrokes. At the same time, however, she makes effective use of the different media at her disposal, such as watercolor and tempera paint and papercrafts. The work also has a strong narrative feel, with a focus on the psychological impact of the paintings.
The Lady and Her Art
The Margot De Broglie papers, which contain correspondence, drawings, and paintings by the artist, also document Margot De Broglie’s relationship with a man named Serge Silvestre. The two were romantically involved in the early 1920s and were married in 1925. Margot and Serge Silvestre are the subjects of an in-depth article by writer Marguerite Yourcenar in a book about the artist, The Lady and Her Art (L’Artiste et Ses Oeuvres).
The Power of Words
Many of the letters written by Margot De Broglie to her friends and family during her lifetime reference her work and her art. Among these letters is a letter written in 1922 shortly after the artist’s first exhibition in which she discusses her work, motivations and methods. The letter, which Yourcenar includes in the book, is titled “The Power of Words.” Youcenar writes that in the letter Margot De Broglie explains: ” ‘I am not an artist who paints beautiful things, I paint ugly things. I have no tact, I have no feeling, I do not know color, I have painted nothing beautiful. It is enough for me to paint things that I like or that I believe in. It is their ugliness that attracts people to them. A Man with a brush is always a Man who wishes to impress people not to become associated with beauty.’
In her artistic career as a painter, Margot De Broglie was associated with the art movement known as Neo-Impressionism. The movement was centered on the adoption of Impressionism’s use of messy, primary colors, but also included elements of Cubism, Dadaism, and Surrealism. De Broglie was one of the most famous artists associated with this movement and her work is highly sought after by collectors and painters alike.
