Note: Leopold Pascal moved from Brittany to Montmartre, Paris in 1922. His first one man show received excellent reviews including the art critic Andre Warnod.
He exhibited at the major Paris salons from 1923.
A member of the resistance during WW2, he was assigned to the Free French Naval Forces
in the UK, and became their war correspondent in 1942. Meeting Charles De Gaulle and Winston Churchill, he created murals at London, Greenock, Glasgow and Portsmouth.
After the war, Pascal settled in Chelsea, where he was one of the founder members of the Artists of Chelsea group.
In the UK, paintings by the artist are in the collections of the National Museum, Cardiff, the Museum of Glasgow and the National Maritime Museum, Cornwall. In France, his work is in the collection of the Petit Palais, the City of Paris Modern Art Museum and the Musee des Jacobin, Morlaix.
