The life of Serge Poliakoff (1900-1969) is linked to the tormented history of Russia at the beginning of the 20th century. Born in 1900 into a large and happy family, his life as a young man was turned upside down when his father died in the First World War in 1917. He then fled to Constantinople and then across Europe. To earn a living, he is a guitarist. At the start of the 1920s, he arrived in Paris, making it his city of heart. He then studied mechanics, then decided in 1929 to devote himself to painting, while continuing to music, to meet his needs. With constancy, he pursues his pictorial research and manages to find a path of his own.
There is a common thread between music and painting in Serge Poliakoff: harmony: both musical and pictorial notion, of concord between the different parts of a whole. Serge Poliakoff is not the inventor of the abstraction that was born when he was a child. But he seized upon this pictorial modernity like no one before him: in Poliakoff's paintings there is a balance of shapes and colors, a geometric rigor, without drought.
In this gouache, there is a controlled tension between the forms on the one hand and the colors on the other. None takes over, as if everything was composed at the same time, like the famous cut-out gouaches of Matisse, except that Poliakoff does not cut his shapes directly in colors but creates them, like the old masters. He invents his colors, their rendering, their texture, their luminosity. The colors are not laid flat, they are superimposed and reveal the underlying colored layers, in a subtle play of materials.
