Jan 4th – Feb 13th, 2018
Please join Charlene Newsom in celebrating the mesmerizing work of the late, Wladimir de Terlikowski at the exhibition’s opening reception Sunday, January 7th from 1-4pm.
Wladimir de Terlikowski (1873-1951) was a Polish painter of great distinction who lived, worked, and played in Paris in the early 20th century. Picasso, Modigliani, Matisse, Bonnard, Soutine, Chagall, and many other avant-guarde painters were active alongside Terlikowski in the popular artists’ quarters of Montparnasse and Montmartre.
While Wladimir Terlikowski enjoyed the company of these great talents as they gathered at night in the cafes, he was hard at work every morning in his studio. Terlikowski’s paintings are admired for their vivid use of color and the luscious application of paint with the palette knife. Terlikowski refused to be defined with any one group of painters and cut his own path. Yet, the influences of the Impressionists, Cubists, and Fauves can be traced in many of his works. Terlikowski had his first one man show at Galerie Bernheim-Jeune in 1900. He enjoyed only a few decades of production when the ravages of the second world war and his own old age ended his career at his peak. Terlikowski was known as “the Polish master” (p. 24, Perlman). In 1918 Terlikowski was awarded the Legion Of Honor in recognition of his artistic achievement.
