Pavel Tchelitchew (1898-1957); Portrait of Edulji Dinshaw, Graphite on Paper


An original pencil drawing on paper depicting Edulji Dinshaw by Russian/American Surrealist Pavel Tchelitchew, signed and dated 1941. This work was created the year after a monumental Surreal portrait of Dinshaw was painted along with several preparatory sketches.

Tchelitchew was a Russian born artist who studied under Aleksandra Ekster in Kiev. In 1923 the artist moved to Paris where he became acquainted with noted socialite and "taste maker" Gertrude Stein, and with this new friendship many new doors were opened for Tchelitchew. In 1930 the artist exhibited for the first time in the US at MOMA, and in the museum currently hangs one of his most important works "Hide and Seek". In 1934 the artist emigrated to New York from Paris along with his life partner, the noted writer Charles Henri Ford.

The subject of the drawing, Edulji Dinshaw, was from a very wealthy Parsi Indian family and resided in New York with his sister.
