Georges Henri Tribout was born in Paris in 1884. He studied at the Université de Notre Dame in Boulogne.
Tribout attended the Académie Julian in 1904-1905. He started painting in the Cubist style and exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants in 1909, he showed a portrait of his friend Emile Verhauey. At this time he lived in Saint Cloud and he was a friend with Ensor, Montald, and Stephen Zweig, who all advised him on his painting.
During the First World War he was with Forain, Guiraud de Scevola and many other artists in the “Camouflage” in the French Army.
After the war he painted landscapes and portraits and exhibited at the
Galerie Alligons in Paris, his works were permanently displayed there.
From 1930 Tribout became interested in Architecture, forsaking gallery exhibitions. He continued to paint and died in 1962.
Like many artists of his period he was almost completely forgotten until his atelier was sold in Paris in the 1980’s, and his paintings found a new appreciation.
