Description
Sacha Kolin ( French/American 1911-1981) - untitled abstract
Gouache - Artist's stamp - 1960

Sacha Kolin (1911 Paris-1981 NYC) grew up in Vienna, where she trained at the Kunstgewerbeschule and Academy of Fine Arts and exhibited at the Secession and Künstlerhaus.

In 1933, Kolin returned to Paris and studied in the studio of Naum Aronson, formerly a stone carver for Rodin. She participated in several Paris Salons and in 1935, was elected Societaire - the youngest full member - of the Nationale Societe des Beaux Arts. At age 25, Kolin immigrated to the United States and settled in New York City. From the 1940s, she was inspired by American Indian lore and iconography. Her work of this time - in particular her watercolours - is likened to that of Kandinsky and Klee; her later painted sculpture and calligraphic drawings, to Arp and Miró. See RO Gallery, NY.
