Capon was born in Paris in 1890. He studied at l’École
Capon exhibited his work for many years in solo exhibitions at the Galerie Berthe Weill on the Rue Lafitte, in Paris. He exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1931.
Modern technique and style define his body of work. Like his friends Dufy, Gromaire and Savin, he captured the cafes and nightclubs along with urban and country landscapes. Capon’s paintings are often exquisitely beautiful, nicely drawn with perfectly balanced colors and strong composition. He was also known to have been friends with Jacques Wolf and Cubist painter Pierre Hodé.
