Zadkine, Ossip Birth - Death : 1890-1967 Nationality : Russian then French
Zadkine much admired Rodin, but found above all his inspiration in primitive arts. After tackling Cubism between 1921 and 1925, his works evolved towards some form of poetry. Born in Smolensk, after his Jewish father had converted to the Greek Orthodox religion in order to marry his mother, who was of Scottish descent, Zadkine was sent to Sunderland at 16 in order to learn good manners among people of the British society. This gave him the opportunity of frequenting an art school there before going to London. Back in Smolensk in 1907, he returned to London the following year and studied at the Arts and Crafts School while taking the opportunity of visiting the British Museum and nurturing a passion for Greek sculpture. Zadkine then went in 1909 to Paris and studied briefly at the School of Beaux-Arts, where he could not yield to academic discipline. After renting a studio in the rue Rousselet, he met Apollinaire, Archipenko, Picasso, Lipchitz, Survage and Blaise Cendrars in 1912 and veered toward Cubism two years later. After enlisting in the French Foreign Legion during the First World War, Zadkine was wounded and discharged. Zadkine then took French nationality and married in 1920 Valentine Prax, who was working as a painter. He traveled from 1920 throughout Europe and to the U.S, where he sought refuge during the Second World War. Back in Paris in 1945, he taught sculpture to many young artists at La Grande Chaumiere, the School of Beaux-Arts and in his studio rue d'Assas. Zadkine took part in many exhibitions in France and abroad from 1910 and was notably distinguished with the Sculpture Grand Prize at the Venice Biennale in 1950 and the Prize of the City of Paris in 1960. Though he admired Rodin much, he was rather influenced by African art and Cubism in his oeuvre finding his own expression after 1925 when he inverted volumes in order to play with light effects. Zadkine was rather prolific during his career and played a major role in the history of modern sculpture. From 1955 until 1967 he devoted much of his time to engraving after he had exhausted all possible themes with pieces produced in wood, stone, plaster, terracotta, marble, granite and bronze. Zadkine studio was transformed into a museum after his death. Zadkine was acknowledged as a great innovator of Cubist sculpture along with Jacques Lipchitz.
