Sacha Chimkevitch

French (1920–2006)

About the artist:

The spirit and drive of a man who has truly experienced life emanates from the work of Sacha Chimkevitch.

Born August 17, 1920 in Paris, Chimkevitch began studying architecture at the Beaux Arts in Paris, but studies were interrupted when he was called to serve his country and taken prisoner of war for five years.  In 1945 he continued his studies with art courses at the Beauxs Arts in Paris, and Le Grande Chaumiere.  He is well known as one of  France's architectural planners.

Chimkevitch's first exhibit was at Poitiers in 1950.  He then participated in the Premier Salon of Jazz in Paris, the Salon de le Peinture a L'eau, and exhibited his works at the Salon d'Automne in the Museum of Modern Art in Paris.  Among many other expositions entered were expositions at Galerie Rousso in Paris, 1962; and in 1963 at Washington's Obelisk Gallery.

In 1960 the French State purchased oils and watercolors created by Sacha Chimkevitch for its private collection.  Then Air France commissioned him to create paintings for their offices in Manila and Hong Kong.

The works of Chimkevitch have been published in American, German, English, and French publications.  His prints are to be found in the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris as well as many Parisian and Provincial French Galleries.
