artist biography 
Armand-Marie Guérin was born in Paris in 1913. He was a French painter.

He grew up in a family of successful artists. His father, Vincent Manago (1878-1936) and his older brother, Dominique Manago (b. 1902), were respected artists although their styles were radically different from the young Armand’s. An independent streak led Armand to sign his work with the adopted surname of Guerin to mark him out from his family. He studied at the École Nationale des Beaux Arts in Paris where he was a student of academic painter Jean-Pierre Laurens among others. He became a noted figure amongst the French naïve school. His work has a playful spontaneous quailty, unaffected with a whimsical simplicity that belies the classical training behind its creation and depicts the lively and inventive scenes of his native city. 

Armand-Marie Guérin passed away in Paris in 1983.
