A new gallery collaboration at Paris Biennale des Antiquaires 2016
Pissarro's Le Chou à Pontoise, painted in 1882.

PARIS.- E & R Cyzer and Alon Zakaim Fine Art announced their inaugural collaboration, exhibiting as Cyzer & Zakaim at the 28th Biennale des Antiquaires, Paris. Their collaboration will for the first time bring to the public eye a number of fine paintings of distinguished provenance, and continues the close relationship between the two London art dealers.

A highlight to be exhibited on their joint stand will be a spectacular Wassily Kandinsky work on paper, Scharf, from 1928. This work boasts a compelling provenance, having been until recently in the important collection of Julia Wasserman, a well-known Connecticut representative and philanthropist who passed away in 2015. Mrs Wasserman was an avid collector of modern masterpieces, amassing a prominent collection with her husband in their home in Sandy Hook, Connecticut. Mrs Wasserman’s journey to public service and later to art patron was remarkable, as she escaped from Nazi Germany to New York in 1941 at the age of 14 and subsequently achieved her high rank through great determination. As a result, it is easy to see the reason for Mrs Wasserman’s attraction to the boldness and dynamism of ‘Scharf’. This work is from one of the pivotal moments of Kandinsky’s creative and intellectual career. It was conceived during the Bauhaus period, shortly after the publication of Kandinsky’s influential 1926 text Point and Line to Plane, where he further developed the theories of the Bauhaus on composition and space.

In addition, Cyzer and Zakaim will be showing a significant painting by Marc Chagall from a notable private collection. L’ane rouge, La Tour Eiffel, 1953, is infused with the passionate energy, colour, and romantic longing which defines Chagall’s work of this period. It is a wonderful example of the profound role the city played in the artist’s life.

Cyzer & Zakaim will also present an important Pissarro oil, Le Chou à Pontoise, painted in 1882. The work has outstanding provenance, having first been acquired by the director of Georges Petit galerie, and close friend of Mr Petit himself, Isidor Montaignac. The painting later passed through the hands of Paul Durand-Ruel in the 1920s. The short, swift brushstrokes in the painting pre-empt Pissarro’s Neo-Impressionistic style, and the subject of ‘Le Chou’ references the artist’s intimate dialogue with Cézanne and Gauguin during this period. Pontoise itself marked a turning point for the artist, fuelling his desire to capture a place scarcely painted by the more traditional French masters, and therefore contributing to the new vocabulary of landscape painting established by the Impressionists.

In addition seminal works by artists including Pablo Picasso, Fernand Léger, Henri Le Sidaner, Jean Dubuffet, Joan Miró and Raoul Dufy will be exhibited.

E & R Cyzer and Alon Zakaim Fine Art will continue to trade independently from their London galleries and look forward to expanding this partnership, showcasing a selection of their finest works as Cyzer & Zakaim.

Cyzer & Zakaim will be exhibiting on Stand N22, Biennale des Antiquaires, Grand Palais, Avenue Winston Churchill, 75008 Paris. The fair is open from Saturday 10th to Sunday 18th September. Opening hours are 11am - 8 pm (11am - 11 pm Thursday 15th).
