Biography

Auguste Baillayre was born in 1879 in France (Eastern Pyrenees) where he spent his childhood and his adolescence in Georgia (1885–1898). He studied then in Amsterdam, St. Petersburg and Grenoble and became an important artistic personality in Chişinău (1918–1943). He was a professor at the Chişinău Art School. Several of his works are kept at the National Museum of Fine Arts, Chişinău, whose first director he was in 1939.[2]

The Post of Moldova issued, on May 1, 2009, its 9th postal stationery cover with a preprinted stamp commemorating the 130th anniversary of Auguste Baillayre.
