Marcel Arnaud is a French painter born in Marseille on 8 October 1877 and died in Aix-en-Provence on 18 March 1856.
He moved to Paris at the age of 18 where he worked on set designs while studying the old masters at the Louvre. He met the sculptor Bourdelle in Paris. He had his first meeting with his counterpart Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) in Saint-Henri, Marseille and painted various works in his presence. After returning to Marseille, where he was married in 1904, he exhibited in various regional salons and with the painter Olive. In 1914, he was appointed professor of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Aix-en-Provence and he then became the director from 1917 to 1946. During the same period, Marcel Arnaud refused to give up the entirety of his painted works to the famous art dealer Ambroise Vollard who asked by mutual agreement. His friend John Rewald supported him on this point. He wrote: “Marcel Arnaud will bring the continuity of Cezanne to painting that time did not allow Paul Cezanne.” The numerous letter exchanges between Cezanne and Marcel were in the hands of John Rewald. He also became curator of the Musée Granet from 1926 to 1947. During 1953-54, he painted a rare series of works on Evian in front of Lake Geneva. He exhibited in Marseille or Aix-en-Provence until his death in 1956. He is buried in the Saint-Pierre Aix-en-Provence cemetery, in the same place as Paul Cezanne (1839-1906)
