Description

Louis MARCOUSSIS (1883-1941). Still life with fish. Oil on canvas. Signed upper right. Dimensions : 49 x 60 cm. Provenance: Estate of Monsieur Louis Thirion, furniture from the private mansion built in 1923 by Gibert et Ogé, which has remained in the family ever since. Louis Marcoussis, originally named Louis Markus, was a Franco-Polish avant-garde painter active mainly in Paris. He was born in Warsaw in 1883 into a cultured Jewish family that had converted to Catholicism. Marcoussis studied law in Warsaw before attending the Krakow Academy of Fine Arts. He then moved to Paris to study with Jules Lefebvre at the Académie Julian. The adopted name Marcoussis, suggested by Guillaume Apollinaire, comes from the village of Marcoussis near Paris. In the late 1930s, Marcoussis collaborated with Spanish surrealist Joan Miró, teaching him the etching techniques that led to Miró's famous Black and Red series. Marcoussis' work has been exhibited in museums including the Tate Gallery in London, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia.
