TADE MAKOWSKI (Polish / 1882-1932)

Josef Tadeusz Makowski was one of the most important Polish artists of the early twentieth-century. He was born in Oswiecim (Auschwitz), but died in Paris, where he spent his working career. He attended the school of Fine Arts in Krakow, before moving to Paris in 1909. Tadé Makowski was influenced by Cubism, and by his friendships with other School of Paris artists such as Marcel Gromaire and Édouard Goerg. He exhibited at the Galerie Bertha Will alongside Gromaire, Goerg, Dubreuil, Krogh, and Pascin. This was a hard-living set, and Makowski died young, at only 50, two years after executing our etching. After his death the others set up the Société des Amis de Tadé Makowski, of which Marcel Gromaire was president.
