(1887 - ?)
Born to a Jewish family in Russia, he went to Paris on a scholarship in 1910. His work has a recurring theme of love and happiness, which is uncharacteristic of surrealism. Despite the great tragedies that befell him (WWI and WWII, the death of his wife, and the massacre of the Jews), this theme remained a constant in his work. He is known for such paintings as “The Lovers” (1923), “The Acrobat” (1930), and “To My Wife” (1934).
