BiographyEdit

Andrée Husson spent part of her youth in Spain, a country she often evoked. At the age of twelve, she began to line up rhymes and compose poems. In June 1906, totally unknown at 21, she published her first volume of verse: Gemmes et Moires. Six months later, all the illustrated magazines published her portrait and all the newspapers printed her name. She has just received a literary prize, the Prix Femina, awarded annually by the female jury of the great social magazine of the time: La Vie heureuse [fr] and the sum of 5000 francs. She did not hide the influence of her masters: Charles Baudelaire, Henri de Régnier, and overall Paul Verlaine.

Andrée Husson married Raymond Lécuyer. She inherited the Académie Julian, the art gallery created in 1868 by her uncle, the painter Rodolphe Julian.[3] After being closed during the war of 1939-1945, the Académie Julian was sold by Andrée Husson to Cécile Beldent and André Del Debbio [fr] (1908–2010) to again be opened on Saturday 12 October 1946.

Her work L'Espagne de la victoire was an ode to Francoist Spain.
