Roland Oudot (French; 1897-1981) is an important member of the group known as "Artists of Poetic Reality." This term, describing painters in France between the two World Wars, includes Oudot and his friends, Legueult and Brianchon. They sought the beauty in the real, as a departure from the stylistic Impressionist and post-Impressionist pioneers that came before them.

Oudot studied at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris from 1915 - 1918. Then followed an influential period when he worked with Leon Bakst, head painter for the Russion Ballet. Oudot was given assignments for murals, scenic design and costumes. His involvement with the ballet led to the world of interior decorating, where he designed fabric and furniture for the firm of Sue and Mare.

In 1918, he returned to the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs and the atelier of Eugéne Morand. Here he studied paintings by Marquet, Matisse and Duffrenoy while he prepared for his first exhibition, the 1919 Salon d'Automne.

By 1925, he was a member of the Committee for the Salon des Tuilleries where his paintings were shown. From then on, the artist was sought by collectors, and for fifty years his works were frequently shown in galleries in Paris, Brussels, New York, Pittsburgh, Sydney, London, Venice, and others throughout France and Switzerland.

He is represented in several museums in France: Musée d'Art Moderne and Cabinet des Étampes in Paris; Musée des Beaux-Arts in Nantes; and in Albi, Bagnols-sur-céze, Cambrai, Grenoble, and Cérés.
