Through his training, his inspiration from the pictorial movements of his time, his frequentation of the Bateau-Lavoir and his friendships such as those of Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso, Paul Signac, Giorgio De Chirico, Marie Laurencin, Chaim Soutine, Maurice Utrillo, Georges Braque, Paul Jouve and Maurice de Vlaminck, Jean Desprès had his place in our gallery and our admiration for his achievements makes that we do not deprive to include him
