Collection: Serge Poliakoff   1900 - 1969 

Serge Poliakoff (1900 – 1969) was a Russian-born French modernist painter belonging to the 'New' École de Paris. He settled in Paris in 1923 where he met Wassily Kandinsky, Sonia and Robert Delaunay, and Otto Freundlich. Poliakoff held his first one-man Paris exhibition in 1945.

In 1962 a room was given over to his paintings by the Venice Biennial, and Poliakoff became a French citizen in the same year. His works are now displayed in a large number of museums in Europe and New York. He died in 1969.
