Claude Roger-Marx (12 November 1888, Paris – 17 May 1977, Paris), was a French writer, and playwright, as well as an art critic and art historian like his father Roger Marx (1859–1913).[1] He also used the pen name "Claudinet".[2]


Roger-Marx, son of Roger Marx and Elisa Nathan (1859–1933), achieved his baccalauréat in 1906, studied at the faculties of law and humanities of the University of Paris,[3] and began to write poems and plays. In 1912 he married Florestine Caroline Nathan, who gave birth to their two children.[4] He published two novels, before he wrote plays.[5] In 1927 he became a chevalier of the Légion d'honneur.[3] During World War II, in February 1944 he lost his son, who was imprisoned by the Gestapo. Roger-Marx, as a Jew, fled to Marseille in 1941, and in 1943 to Isère.

His real career as critic and art historian started after the war.[4] He was a great admirer of art, and became inspector of the Écoles des Beaux-Arts (schools of fine arts). He also was chroniqueur attitré of the Figaro, especially the Figaro Littéraire, its literary supplement, as well as of the Revue de Paris.[5] In 1956 he was made commander of the Légion d'honneur.[3]
