Catalogue Note

Born in Russia in 1897, Chaprio left home at a very early age to study art independently. After the revolution, he collaborated with Vachtangov in the production of The Dybbuk. His style developed from Cubism and Constructivism towards a more realistic manner. He settled in Paris in 1925 where he developed a passion for French painting and became a prominent member of the School of Paris.
