GREGOIRE MICHONZE 1902-1982
Kichinev (Bessarabia) 1902-1982 Paris (Russian/French)
Born 1902 in Kichnieff, Bessarabia (which was incorporated into Romania in 1918, and is now in Moldova). Died 29 December, 1982, in Paris.
Michonze was a Romanian Jew (his mothers family were rabbis) who worked with VICTOR BRAUNER as an assistant set designer at the National Theatre in Bucharest. He left for Paris in 1922, where he became a close friend of Henry Miller, ILARIE VORONCA, and BENJAMIN FONDANE. He also designed a theatrical revue in Paris. He is generally remembered as a Surrealist painter, though not all of his work was in that style.
