Biography - Igor Talwinski (1907-1983)

Born in Warsaw in 1907, he graduated from the Technical

technical and electrical school. He took part in the war in Poland

then in the Warsaw Resistance in 1944. Deported to

Germany, later liberated by the Americans, Igor Talwinski

arrived in France in 1945 and worked as a technician.

He developed a taste for painting and attended the

Académie de la Grande Chaumière. Naturalized French

in 1955, he devoted himself fully to his art from

1959. A figurative painter, Talwinski exhibited every year at the

Artistes Français, of which he is a member. He was awarded an

honorable mention in 1953, and also took part in the Salon d'hiver

and the Salon de l'école française.

Although he treats other subjects such as still lifes, flowers and landscapes

flowers and landscapes, his art focuses mainly on the evocation

evocation of the female body, its grace and sensuality.

Relying on solid drawing, Talwinski gently brushes

the faces and bodies of his models, which he accentuates

accentuated by lively knife strokes that sculpt the material

and enlivening the luminous backgrounds of his compositions. He is also

also an excellent portraitist.

Early works, produced when he was living in the

5th arrondissement of Paris, there's a close affinity with the

Paris School: paste work, muted tones. Then

his execution becomes bolder and light invades his compositions,

softly modeling bodies. Knife work

became increasingly important, and towards the end of his life

vibrant works towards the end of his life.

Inspired by the piquant charm of the 18th-century French school

French school, Igor Talwinski perfected his technical mastery

for the pleasure of depicting one of art's universal motifs

of art: the woman.
