Georges Joubin was born in 1888 in Digny, France.
Joubin studied at the Académie Julian in 1906 in the atelier
of Jean Pierre Laurens. Later he attended l’École des Beaux-Arts
and studied with Gabriel Ferrier.
Joubin settled in first atelier in 1911 on the Rue de la Gaité
in Montparnasse. He exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants beginning
in 1912. He exhibited in the following years at the Salon d’Automne,
Salon des Tuileries, and exhibited with and was a member of the committee
at the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts.
In 1919 Joubin participated in the founding of l’École
de Montmartre with André Dignimont, Asselin, Jules Pascin, and
Joubin was a bold and almost reckless modernist. His technique was that
of the Postimpressionists, he represented his subjects using geometry
like the Cubists, and the resulting imagery is classically “School
of Paris.” He painted nudes, beach scenes, still lifes, and portraits,
always with the same enthusiasm.
