Although we know very little about him, André David’s paintings appear quite frequently on the market, his works are characteristic of the first half of the 20th century.

He is famous for his portraits of him, which often depict young gypsies with opulent brown hairstyles, holding a guitar or tambourine, for his animated views of Paris, Montmartre and the Sacré-Coeur.

He also painted some canvases intended to decorate the famous Cristal Palace brothel in rue Saint Augustin.

He produced superb large-scale frescoes, with an Art-Deco aesthetic, following, like many artists of the 1930s, the fashion and taste for the colonial era, depicting hunting scenes of antelopes, gazelles and various exotic animals.
