Pierre Louis Jacob, son of a Breton fisherman, moved to Paris in 1924 and adopted the artist name Tal-Coat (Breton: "wood-face"), in order to avoid being mistaken for the artist and poet Max Jacob. In the 1940s Tal-Coat was among the founding members of Tachism, a French variant of Abstract Expressionism, which prefers the spontaneous act of creation to one based on composition. Tal-Coat's works, rendered in various techniques, are characterized by this minimalistic formal aspect. In 1968 Tal-Coat was awarded the Grand-Prix National des Arts.
