Maurice Denis (French: [dəni]; 25 November 1870 – 13 November 1943) was a French painter, decorative player and writer, who was an important figure in the transitional epoch between impressionism and enlightened art. He was joined with Les Nabis then the Symbolist movement, and then subsequent to a return to neo-classicism. His theories contributed to the foundations of cubism, fauvism, and abstract art. Following the First World War, he founded the Ateliers d’Art Sacré (Workshops of Sacred Art), decorated the interiors of churches, and worked for a revival of religious art.
