Danseuse au Miroir Ossip Lubitch was a Post-Impressionist painter born in Grodno, now Belorussia, into a Jewish family. From 1915-1919 Lubitch studied at the Odessa Art College and the following year moved to Berlin. While in Berlin, he worked as a decorator for the Berlin Opera as well as local cabarets.


Snow in Montparnasse

In 1923, Lubitch moved to Paris where he met fellow artists Antoine Bourdelle and Pavel Chlischchev. Here he studied the works of the old masters like Goya, and the new masters like Degas. In 1925 he was accepted into the Salon des Tuileries, and in 1934 he published “Cirque” which featured sketches and poems of circus scenes.

Lubitch was arrested in Paris during World War II and was sent to a concentration camp in Drancy, barely missing the convoy to Auschwitz. Somehow, he was lucky enough to escape the camp with his life. It was not until after the war that his career began to pick up. During this time, he met and married his wife Suzanne Boulboire, also a painter whom he later had a daughter with. Lubitch spent his time painting portraits, still life and landscapes, and exhibited his work around the world in New York, Milan, Jerusalem and Paris.


Flowers and Still Life

Today his work is housed in various collections and museums worldwide. During his lifetime, he commemorated the Holocaust by donating the drawings he produced while in Drancy to the Yad Vasheim Institute in Jerusalem.
