About

Born in Baku, Russia in 1899, prolific avant-garde artist and painter Nahum Tschacbasov studied in Paris with Leopold Gottlieb, Marcel Gromaire and Fernand Léger. In 1935, Tschacbasov moved to New York City, where he dominated the art world from the 1930s through the 1950s. Tschacbasov was one of the co-founders of the Ten Dissenters, a group of young artists including Mark Rothko, Joseph Solman, Ilya Bolotowsky and Leopold Gottlieb, among others, protesting an art establishment they considered conservative in favor of individuality, abstraction and expressionism. Tschacbasov exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Art Institute of Chicago, Corcoran Gallery, Knox-Albright Museum and ACA and Perls Galleries in New York, among others. The National Arts Club hosted a retrospective exhibit of more than fifty of his paintings in 2013. Tschacbasov's works are held in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum, Jewish Museum and Walker Art Center, among others.
