Catalogue Note

Alexandre Serebriakoff (1907-1995) was the second son of Zinaida Serebriakova and one of two of her children who managed to escape Russia to follow their mother to France in 1925. He and his mother shared a studio on the fifth floor of 31 rue Campagne Première in Montparnasse and collaborated on a number of projects, including the decoration of Baron de Brouwer’s mansion in Belgium for which he painted two large horizontal panels in the mid-1930s. Encouraged by the patronage of his wealthy friend and art collector Charles de Beistegui who introduced him to Paris high society, Serebriakoff went on to become one of Paris's most in-demand painters of interiors.
