About the artist
Painter and sculptor, Georges Artemoff (1892-1965) of Russian origin, trained in Rostov on the Don then in Moscow from 1906 to 1912.
A scholarship enabled him to go to Paris in 1913. Welcomed in Paris in 1913 by Ossip Zadkine, he met Picasso, Gris, Modigliani, Soutine, Kikoîne, Pascin.
Enlisted in the 1st foreign regiment during the First World War, he was wounded, reformed and joined his family in Russia. He returned to Paris in 1922. There he founded a wood-based creation workshop and produced sculptures on panels or in "round bumps" marked by the Art Deco style. He created many sets including that of the "Caveau Caucasien" cabaret in Montmartre. In 1937 at the international exhibition in Paris he won the gold medal for his sculpted panels.
At the end of the Second World War, he moved to Sorrèze (Tarn) and declined Stalin's offer to run the Rostov-on-Don painting school. He devoted himself almost exclusively to expressionist-style painting, drawings and scraped papers.
Very weakened by illness, he died in Revel (Haute Garonne) where he had settled in 1952.
The works of Georges Artemoff have been presented in many museums: national center of art and culture "Beaubourg", Fabre Montpellier museum, Goya Castres museum, Gaillac Fine Arts museum.
