SERGE CHARCHOUNE (1888-1975)
If his paintings have been exploring several Parisian artistic movements, including Cubism and Dadaism, Serge Charchoune never belonged to any school.
A young Russian arrived in France in 1912, Charchoune took part in the invention of Purism with Amédée Ozenfant around 1920, a derivative form of Cubism that seeks to keep from the world what is only essential to it.
It is this willingness to find the substance of things, his demanding effort to find visual harmonious and unadorned result, his constant chromatic researches, the spirituality that emanates from his works that make Charchoune one of the most important masters of the century.
