Serge Poliakoff Prints for Sale

Serge Poliakoff (1900-1969) was a Russian-born French modernist painterand printmaker. He was born in Moscow, the thirteenth of fourteen children. He enrolled at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture, but fled Russia in 1918. He arrived in Constantinople in 1920, living off the profits from his talent as a guitarist. He settled in Paris in 1923 and enrolled at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière. His abstract art was influenced by Wassily Kandinsky, Sonia and Robert Delaunay, and Otto Freundlich. Poliakoff held his first one-man Paris show in 1945 and became known as one of the most powerful painters of his generation. In 1947, he was trained by Jean Deyrolle in Gordes in the Vaucluse region of France amongst peers such as Gérard Schneider, Émile Gilioli, Victor Vasarely, and Jean Dewasne. In 1962 a room was given over to his paintings at the Venice Biennial, and Poliakoff became a French citizen in the same year. His works are now displayed in many art galleries all over the world. His lithographs are immediately recognisable by their abstract shapes and subtle colours.
