Biography Moise Kisling (1891-1953) French painter, Ecole de Paris. Born in Kracow, Poland. He began to draw as a very young child and entered the Art Academy of Kracow when he was fifteen. He moved to Paris in 1910. He settled in Montparnasse, where he became popular among the School of Paris artists, and developed a close friendship with Modigliani. Kisling joined the Foreign Legion in 1914, at the outbreak of World War I. Kisling continued to live in France and volunteered for army service again in 1940. When the French Army was discharged at the time of the surrender to the Germans, Kisling went to the United States and, after exhibitions in New York and Washington, lived in California until 1946. He then returned to France to live in Sanary-sur-Mer, on the Mediterranean coast until his death. One of the best painters of LEcole de Paris, he is represented in important museums and private collections throughout the world.
