Women In Paris Mid Century French

About

Women in Paris, oil on masonite panel signed and title 15x18 with frame 27x30. From the Collection of Bass Museum of Art, a label on the back. Michel-Marie Poulain (1906 – 1991) performer, painter, stained-glass artist. Michel-Marie was born in Nogent-sur-Marne, Paris. After having been dressed as a girl and sent to girls’ schools, he went to high school as a boy, but with long hair. He was met with taunts, but being big and strong he easily punched the jokers to the ground. He was allowed to be a girl every Sunday and kept a room at home with perfumes and dresses. At 15, la demoiselle Poulain was taken to a jeweler to have her ears pierced, and attended her first ball in a maidenly dress. At 20, he cut off his hair for the first time and did his national service in the Dragoons. Afterward, he quickly spent his legacy, and then became a transvestite performer in the music hall under the name of Micky. He became involved with and married Solange, a fellow performer, and they had a daughter, Michele. He was also a painter and exhibited regularly at the Salon d'Automne and the Salon des Indépendants in Paris.
