Biography

In the Montmartre quarter of Paris, where George Pilley lived under the name Géo Cim and acquired a minor celebrity, he relished a bourgeois and bohemian existence in the artistic milieu of the Roaring Twenties, despite the fact that he had been severely wounded in WWI.

Post-war misery inspired a number of his major works such as "tramps," a painting with dark colors, austerely depicting the jobless world of the streets. Géo Cim still remains a popular painter in Montmartre.
