A mixed media gouache and pastel portrait work by the gifted and fondly remembered Russian Jewish artist Alexander Davidovich Ziliouk – Sacha Zaliouk. The artist moved to Paris in 1912 and studied at the Paris Ecole des Beaux-Arts. He contributed jazz-age art deco illustrations for many of the notorious French Roaring twenties flapper girl magazines such as Fantasio, Sourire, Le Journal Amusant, La Vie Parisienne and the more scabrous Paris-plaisirs. He set up a studio in the cities Montparnasse area and was a well known and often exhibited avant-garde artist as seen by this haunting and evocotive unique portrait of a lovely young Parisian.
