He arrived in Paris in 1912, and the artist remained in France, where he lived and worked most of his life. In Montparnasse, he made friends with Chagall and Leger; he met the artists André Derain, Maurice de Vlaminck, and Max Jacob, and Modigliani painted his portrait. From 1905 to 1939, Paris was the world's art capital, and Kremegne became part of the group known as Ecole de Paris. ⊕ This lot is under temporary importation and is subject to import tax (5.5%) (EU) and administrative customs broker fees.
