POLAND. Sacha CHIMKEVITCH (1920-2006). Erotic... - Lot 44 - Marie-Saint Germain
POLAND. Sacha CHIMKEVITCH (1920-2006). Erotic scenes, circa 1980. 8 mixed media drawings, ink, pastel, charcoal and pencil, 76 x 54 cm or 54 x 38 cm. All are signed on the lower front. Polish by his father, Sacha Chimkevitch attended the École des Beaux-arts de Paris (Lemagny studio) and the Académie de la Grande Chaumière. Chimkevitch has two passions: jazz and eroticism. On the theme of jazz, he made many posters and record sleeves. According to Claude Combaz: "His work is a chronicle of jazz, we meet all the musicians from Duke Ellington to Charlie Mingus and many were his friends. The jazz musicians say of him that he is like them, that he knows how to understand them and that he has the feeling in his works." In 1999, he donated his studio collection and his very important collection of jazz records to the Paul Dubois-Alfred Boucher Museum in Nogent-sur-Seine. This museum devoted a retrospective exhibition to him in 2001 and its heritage days in 2006. Joint : Sacha Chimkevitch, Elle et Jazz, Terre des arts, 2005.
