          Christoforos SAVVA (Cypriot), Study for Bathers at Kyrenia

          Est: €8,000 - €12,000

          TITLE: Study for Bathers at Kyrenia gouache on paper c.1957 27.5 x 22 cm Note In his career Christoforos Savva made numerous drawings on paper that allowed him to master this medium. This particular work is exemplary of the explorative studies that the artist created for the work Bathers at Kyrenia. Although it is a study for a larger work it does not cease to stand alone as an art work. Here Savva showcases the techniques that he learned during his studies in Paris at Andre Lhote’s renowned studio. He depicts three female nudes using sinuous lines and vibrant colours. Contrasting these sinuous shapes, he uses rigid lines for the background to convey space, achieving a balanced composition. This work on paper is a prime example of the artists ground-breaking work which has been crucial to the development of Cypriot painting. Christoforos Savva was born in Marathovouno in 1924 and died in Sheffield in 1968. He served at the Cypriot Regiment during Second World War. In 1947 he went to London and studied Art at St. Martin’s School of Art and at Heatherley’s School of Art since 1953. He returned to Cyprus in 1953, but in 1956 he left again for Paris, where he studied at André Lhote Academy till 1959. In 1955 he founded the “Art-Lovers’ Society” and in 1960, after he returned to Cyprus, he co-founded Apophasis Gallery with Glyn Hughes, the most important cultural center of the newly-founded Cypriot Democracy. He is considered one of the most influential modernist Cypriot artists of his time having taken part in several important exhibitions in 1958 at Mariac Gallery and Jordan Gallery in Paris, in 1960 at Beirut, in 1967 at the Panhellenic Exhibition, in 1968 at Venice Biennale, in 1962 at “Art in the Commonwealth Today” exhibition which took place at Commonwealth Institute in London, in 1970 at “Contemporary Cypriot Art” at Commonwealth Institute in London, in 1979 at “Demetria” of Thessaloniki and at “Contemporary Cypriot Painting” at Athens National Gallery. After his death, seven posthumous exhibitions were organized by the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture, the latest being the representation of Cyprus in the Venice Biennale in 2019 with a retrospective of Savva’s work. His work can be found public and private collections in Cyprus: at State Gallery of Contemporary Cypriot Art; Nicosia Municipality; Cultural Centre of Popular Bank; Bank of Cyprus Cultural Centre; George der Parthogh collection; and Louki Papaphilipou collection.

          Title: Abstract Composition V, 1964-66 oil on hardboard signed lower left From the introduction to the Christoforos Savva Retrospective Exhibition 16 March - 9 May 2010, by Dr Antonis Danos "Christoforos Savva is a unique case in recent Cypriot culture. Many factors contribute in pronouncing him the most important creator in modern Cypriot art. It was he who introduced contemporary artistic trends, which he brought into a creative dialogue with local traditions; thus he became the link between the first two generations of artists, functioning, at the same time, as a reference point for younger ones. Moreover, he was among the pioneers of the modernisation of the local cultural scene, by rallying together creators from various fields into associations, and by establishing spaces (most important of which, Apophasis Gallery) that housed important (often progressive) activities. The life, the art and the other activities of Savva, testify to a unique personality, and to an artist who creatively assimilated various traditions, and who instinctively and open-mindedly approached contemporary trends, which he introduced into Cypriot art. They also testify to a man who was among the pioneers of the island’s cultural modernisation. During this course, not only he had not been underappreciated or neglected (as it often erroneously claimed), but on the contrary, he was respected and admired from early on, by fellow artists of both the earlier and his own generation (and later on, by younger ones), many of whom, together with creators from other fields, gathered around him in a collective effort for cultural renewal. In the decades following his death, his oeuvre came to be universally acclaimed”.

Quoting Glyn Hughes about this work: 'It seems that May and June were critical months for both of us, those early years of the independence. I remember throwing a small piece of sacculla to him ( Savva). It had a black circle on it that I made right there. He added it to his nice new composition…that he was making while talking to me about his travelling plans… on a piece of paper with the Apophasis letter head. He used it and said to me firmly that the period of the saculles is over…. he was already somewhere else. He put it in my bag so I would remember the end of that.
