Sasha Moldovan (1901-1982), Poppies in a Vase, Oil on canvas


Moldovan has applied thick layers of densely colored pigment to the canvas, creating a highly textured and luminous surface of impastoed dabs of color. His use of contrasting yet brilliant tonalities applied with breezy spontaneity in a series of rhythmic brushstrokes adds to the energetic intensity of the pictorial surface.

"Born to a Jewish family in Bessarabia in Imperial Russia, Moldovan pursued his artistic studies in Paris before emigrating to the U.S. He developed his highly expressionistic style while working with fellow colleagues from the Ecole de Paris, representing painters from Eastern Europe, Russia, Italy and Spain who came to work in France between the two world wars. These included the brilliant yet tormented painter Chaim Soutine as well as the innovative colorist Henri Matisse.
The noted art critic Maria Berg once said of Moldovan: 'Had Van Gogh painted Matisse's pictures while dreaming of Chagall, the result would have been the works of Moldovan.'"
