  • Kallos Paul (1928-2001)

Paul Kallos is a French non-figurative painter of Hungarian origin. In 1944, he was deported by the Nazis to Auschwitz, where many of his relatives perished. He returned to Hungary in 1945 and entered the Budapest School of Fine Arts in 1946. In 1949, Kallos left Stalinist Hungary clandestinely and settled in Paris.
In 1951, Kallos sent four compositions to the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles, to which he regularly participated until 1983. The French art dealer Pierre Loeb noticed his paintings and regularly exhibited his work.
In the middle of the 1950s, Paul Kallos' work turned towards lyrical abstraction, sometimes giving his works allusive titles. In 1975, Kallos abandoned oil for the fluidity of acrylic in a series of stripped-down, very structured, squared, or stratified works, in the middle of luminous spaces, between figuration and abstraction.
