Lot description
Serge Mendjisky (b. 1929) was exposed to the Paris art scene from a young age through his father, the painter Maurice Mendjisky, who was active in the School of Paris. Serge remembers Picasso once telling them that Cubism would be fully achieved through photography. Keeping this prediction in mind, Mendjisky uses photographic collage to achieve multiple perspectives and to reshape our perception of recognizable urban landscapes such as New York, Paris, and Moscow. He recomposes these fractured city skylines with energetic, vibrant colors and creates a sense of three-dimensional volume. Mendjisky's work is held in numerous private and public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Pushkin Museum of Fine Art in Moscow.
