The Michel Kikoïne Art Gallery

On May 14th, 2004, also during the university's board of governors event, a new wing was inaugurated in the University Gallery - the Michel Kikoïne Foundation, donated by the artist' daughter, Claire Maratier-Kikoïne from France, who also donated an impressive collection of her father's works that is permanently displayed in the gallery. Michel Kikoïne (1892-1968) is one of the most important artists of the "Paris School" – a group of young artists, many of which are Jewish, who came to Paris mainly from Eastern and Central Europe in the beginning of the previous century.

 

These artists changed the face of art in France in the period between the two World Wars, quickly became an important part of the avant-garde creation and filled a central role in positioning Paris as the world capital of art that draws inside it new and unusual powers of creation.
