Serge Poliakoff

The World's Greatest Painters
Serge Poliakoff is famous for his abstract painting. After fleeing the Russian Revolution in 1917 with his aunt and uncle, he arrived in Paris at the age of 23 while earning money as a musician. He mixed academic traditions to paint figurative motifs such as naked, houses, trees, etc. Later, He discovered abstraction, he was influenced by Kandinsky and exploited colour without figurative representations. He learned to appreciate the emotional quality of colour and became interested in simultaneous contrasts. He developed a particular form of abstract painting and combined various colour surfaces. In his later works, he reduced his vivid polychromic to ochre shades and developed an inclination for monochrome creations. Since 1962, he devoted himself mainly to lithographs and smaller paintings.
