Igor Talwinski (1907-1983) born in Warsaw in 1907, graduated from an electrical technical school.
He took part in World War II in Poland, and then in the Warsaw Uprising in 1944. Deported to Germany, later liberated by the Americans, Igor Talwinski arrived in France in 1945 and worked as a technician. He settled in the 5th district of Paris.
He developed a love for painting and attended the Grande Chaumière Academy.
He accepted French citizenship in 1955, and from 1959 devoted himself entirely to art.
Inspired by the spicy charm of the French school of the 18th century, Igor Talvinsky honed his technical mastery for the pleasure of depicting one of art's universal motifs: the woman.
As a figurative painter, Talvinsky exhibited annually at the Salon of French Artists, of which he was a member. He received an honorable mention in 1953, and also participated in the Winter Salon and the Salon of French Schools.
Although he covered other subjects such as still life, flowers and landscapes, his art focused mainly on the evocation of the female body, its grace and sensuality.
Relying on solid drawing, Talvinsky delicately paints the faces and bodies of his models, which he highlights with vivid strokes of the spatula, shaping the matter and enlivening the luminous backgrounds of his compositions.
