Vintage Jules Pascin Litho Three Nude Women "Nudes In a Landscape"

Vintage Jules Pascin Litho Three Nude Women "Nudes In a Landscape"

Jules Pascin, or the "Prince of Montparnasse", was a Bulgarian artist known for his paintings and drawings. He later became an American citizen. His most frequent subject was women, depicted in casual poses, usually nude or partly dressed.

Pascin was educated in Vienna and Munich. He traveled for a time in the United States, spending most of his time in the South. In 1922 Pascin and his wife rented a studio in Montmartre and became friends with artists such as Marc Chagall and Amedeo Modigliani. Pascin became best known as a Parisian painter, who associated with the artistic circles of Montparnasse, and was one of the emigres of the School of Paris. Among Pascin's circle of Parisian friends was Ernest Hemingway, whose memoir A Moveable Feast includes a chapter titled "With Pascin At the Dôme", which recounts a night in 1923 when he met Pascin and two of his young models for drinks at the café. Despite achieving success in Europe and North America—Pascin became a naturalized US citizen with the help of Alfred Stieglitz in 1920—he never achieved the critical discourse he craved. Eventually succumbing to depression and alcoholism, he took his own life on the eve of an important solo show on June 5, 1930 at the age of 45. Pascin’s work was appreciated throughout his life and beyond, marked by such achievements as his inclusion in the notorious 1913 Armory Show in New York. Today, his work can be found in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Louvre in Paris, the Art Institute of Chicago, and others.
