The exhibition looks back on the career of this extraordinary artist, who was born in Ukraine to a Jewish family before she emigrated to Palestine and later to Paris in 1910 to study haute couture. Once she began frequenting Montparnasse artists, Chana Orloff gave up her initial trade to devote herself exclusively to sculpture and quickly became one of the most sought-after portraitists of her time. From the artist’s beginnings in Montparnasse to the revival of her sculpture after 1945, this chronological and thematic exhibition parallels Chana Orloff and Ossip Zadkine’s works, focusing on themes that both artists explored at various times in their lives, such as portraits and the human figure, as well as the female body and animals.
The exhibition is organised in partnership with the Ateliers-musée Chana Orloff.
