Michel Delacroix was born in 1933 on the Left Bank, in the 14th Arrondissement of Paris not far from the quarter of Montparnasse. He started painting at the young age of seven just as the German Occupation of Paris began. Paris as it was during the Occupation is the Paris that appears in his paintings even today; there was a virtual absence of automobiles and street lights, the city was quite and isolated. His cityscapes display a simpler Paris of the past, of his boyhood rather than the urban metropolis of today.
