Maurice Henry (Cambrai, 1907 - Milan, 1984) The French poet and painter, active as a filmmaker, art and film critic, photographer and humorous draftsman, was immediately in touch with a group of young poets and philosophers, with whom he founded the "Grand Jeu" movement. He collaborated with the magazines "Le Rouge et le Noir" and "Paris Montparnasse". He was in contact with Robert Desnos, attends André Breton, Benjamin Péret, Louis Aragon, and then Roger Vitrac and Jacques Prévert. From 1928 he collaborates with texts, poems and drawings to the magazine of the "Grand Jeu" movement and participates in the group's exhibition at the Galerie Bonaparte in Paris. He collaborates as editor and reporter with various Parisian magazines, including Le Petit Journal, Cinemonde, Agence Haves, Revue du Cinéma, Pour Vous and Humanité. In 1932, he moved to the surrealist movement, met Salvador Dalí and published poems and drawings on ‘Le Surréalisme au Service de la Révolution’ ’. In 1939 he also began working as a filmmaker, destined to last over sixteen years, during which he will screen the screenplay of twenty films. In 1941 he held his first personal exhibition in Paris, at the Galerie La Peau de Chagrin: the presentation was by Jean Cocteau, the first buyer was Pablo Picasso. From 1944 he collaborated with Albert Camus to the magazine "Combat". In 1951, due to questions concerning the internal discipline of the group, he abandoned the surrealist movement with others. From 1968 he devoted himself almost exclusively to painting, he settled in Milan. In 1972 he edited the volume "Graphic Antology of Surrealism" for the Mazzotta Editions of Milan.
