Still Life with Floral Bouquet, by Pinchas Kremegne (1890-1981). Oil on Canvas.

Kremegne appears completely liberate color and form in this vibrant composition by combining recognizable objects with ambiguous form and space, both of which that are painted with an intense coloration that is rich in emotional content. Kremegne succeeds in dematerializing space as he moves towards abstraction, as color and line interact, but not always together in recognizable shapes, revealing a liberty of expression that translates into a dynamic pictorial surface.

Commentary

"
Kremegne studied art at the Art Academy in Vilno, Russia with Chaim Soutine and Michel Kikoine before moving to the art community of 'La Ruche' in Paris in 1912. He quickly abandoned sculpture to study the masters at the Louvre, and discovered the work of the Impressionist, Fauve and Cubist painters. He befriended Modigliani, who painted his portrait, as well as Chagall and Leger. He participated in the Salon des Independants in 1913, and later at the Salon des Tuileries; he had several one-man shows in major galleries around the world, including Philadelphia and London. He was given a major retrospective at the Musee des Beaux Arts de Chartres, France in 1996.
Kremegne was initially drawn to Symbolism, but quickly came under the influence of Van Gogh in his densely colored and highly textured compositions meant to reveal his inner soul. His encounter with Derain and Vlaminck in 1916 led him to produce a series of 'red nudes', tortured still-life and vivid landscapes, as well as several portraits that strongly reveal his admiration for El Greco. His numerous travels to Israel and throughout Europe finally led him to the village of Ceret in the south of France, where the bright sunlight and luminous colors of the countryside led him to stay put and produce his brightest and most serene landscapes.
