Art Brokerage: Alexandre Istrati French Artist: b. 1915-1991. Alexandre Istrati was born in 1915 and died in 1991 in Paris. At the early age of 9 Istrati began to paint, but he decided to study of la at the University of Bucharest from 1932-1937. In 1938 Istrati received his diploma from the art academy of Bucharest where he was a profrossor until 1947. He married the Romanian painter Natalia Dumitresco in 1939. Alexandre Istrati received many awards for his work in Bucharest. Because of a scholarship in 1947, Istrati and his wife were able to move to Paris where they definitively established themselves. Istrati studied with Andre Lhote at the Ecole de Beaux type in Paris. Istrati and Dumitresco befriended the sculptor Constantin Brancusi, and worked in a studio next door until Brancusi's death in 1957. Together with his wife, Istrati reorganized the "studio Brancusi" in the Pompidou Center dedicated in 1977. Istrati's pictures are colorful and romantic; they open a world of sounds and colors. What appears chaotic is a passionate growth of the colors. Sometimes the color swabs sit easily like powder on the canvas, other times they are sucked in with the movement of the composition.
