Grigory GLUCKMANN (1898-1973)
Born October 25, 1898 at the Lithuanian border. 20th century, active in France. Russian. Painter of nudes, typical scenes, engraver, illustrator. He studied at the Moscow School of Fine Arts until 1920, where he devoted himself mainly to drawing. Then he came to settle at Florence, and Paris, where he remained. He will love to paint typical Parisian scenes of the nights of Montmartre, but it is for his nudes that amateurs seek him. By revealing sensuality through chiaroscuro, he often places them as bathers under tall foliage. He illustrated The Florentine Nights of H. Heine, Salvador Rosa de Hoffmann and Manon Lescaut of Abbot Prévost.
