Oil on canvas, framed. Featuring an orange color portrait. Signed and manner of Moise Kisling (French-Polish, 1891-1953), on the lower left corner. 48 x 41 cm (18.9 x 16.1 in.). Moise Kisling was a French-Polish painter best known for his highly stylized, unsettling portraits. Born on January 22, 1891 in Krakow, Austria-Hungary, he moved to Paris in 1910 where he established himself as an artist. He rented a studio in the district of Montmarte and gained contact with contemporary Parisian ex-pat painters, notably including Jules Pascin and Amedeo Modigliani. His oeuvre includes landscapes, nudes, and portraiture, all painted in his unique style: blocky, bold, simplistic environments containing stylistically exaggerated figures with wide-set limbs and eyes. Kisling died on April 29, 1953 in Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur, France and a substantial portion of his works are housed in the Musee du Petit Palais in Geneva, Switzerland.
