Born in Moscow, Poliakoff (1906-1969) was a Russian-French modernist artist who is best known for his lushly-colored abstract paintings, influenced by his association in the 1930s with Wassily Kandinsky and Sonia and Robert Delaunay (see lot 57). Many of Poliakoff's lithographs and etchings are based on his painted compositions. Rivière 21.
