Jean Carzou (1907-2000) was a French painter, lithographer, engraver (etching, drypoint) and decorator of Armenian origin. Carzou remains "among the outstanding artists of our time: he translated better than anyone else the worries, the dangers, the grandiose and distressing achievements but, this why what makes him truly original, he knew how to express it with poetry" (René Chabannes)
