Moses Kisling (1891 - 1953). Painter, representative of Ecole de Paris. He was born in Kraków. He began his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow in the studio of Józef Pankiewicz. He settled permanently in Paris in 1911, where he associated with a group of artists of Jewish origin who came mainly from Russia and Central and Eastern Europe and became one of the most outstanding representatives of the Ecole de Paris. He served during World War I in the Polish branch of the Foreign Legion, thanks to which he obtained French citizenship. In the interwar period, he achieved the greatest artistic successes, while traveling extensively throughout Italy, the Netherlands and England. He also often traveled to Provence. While living in Montparnasse, he became a well-known figure in society, and his studio was visited by many outstanding artists. He exhibited a lot, especially at the Paris Salon and numerous galleries throughout Europe, and nationally in Krakow and Warsaw. During World War II, he joined the French army and then went to New York. After returning in 1945, he settled permanently in Sanary-sur-Mer. His studio in Paris at 3 rue Joseph-Bara in Montparnasse was a meeting place for the artistic and intellectual elite; Pablo Picasso, André Derain, Juan Gris, Amedeo Modigliani, Chaim Soutine, Charlie Chaplin and Ernest Hemingway visited it. A painter known and appreciated not only in Poland but also around the world.
Kisling sought to create his own portrait formula derived from the art of the early Renaissance. In images from around 1918, there was a stylization referring to the portrait conventions of the Italian quattrocento; the subtle modeling of facial complexion harmonizes with the synthesis of form. The artist's interwar work was dominated by a lyrical image. The models' faces were uniformly styled: they were distinguished by the elongated, almond shape of exaggerated eyes, carefully drawn eyebrows and lips.
