Florent Fels (Paris, 1891 - Cap-d'Ail, 1977) was a writer and art critic. Friend of Blaise Cendrars, between 1920 and 1922, he animated the review Action, cahiers de philosophie et d'art in collaboration with the poet Marcel Sauvage and Robert Mortier. He participated in the movement of the School of Paris, very close to Pascin, Kisling, Max Jacob and André Salmon. He founded the collection "Les Contemporains" at Stock, publishing 42 monographs. An art critic for the Nouvelles Littéraires, he founded the magazine L'Art Vivant in 1925, then, after his death in 1939, directed the magazine Voilà until the fall of Paris in early June 1940. He reorganized Radio Toulouse and in 1945 was appointed artistic director of Radio Monte Carlo under the direction of Robert Schick.
