1950s abstract by Tadensz Fuss-laden (1914-1985)

  • This beautiful little abstract is by one of the most interesting Post-war Polish, artists; Tadeusz Fuss-Kaden. At one point in his career, around the time that this piece was made, TADE (Tadeusz Fuss-Kaden) was exhibiting simultaneously in The Marlborough Gallery, London; Edouard Loeb, Paris and Bertha Schaefer, New York. He also exhibited alongside Joan Miro.

    Signed TADE, and dating from the late 1950s, housed in its original, canvas mount frame. The label is a recent photocopy of a 1960 exhibition in Paris. I believe that this painting was exhibited there and then. 


    Tadeusz Fuss-Kaden (Polish 1914-1985) was a painter of Polish origin who gained international attention in the 1960s for his powerful abstract compositions made of plaster, resin and pigment. Sometimes with strips and rusted tin embedded on the surface. 

    Fuss-Kaden studied at Krakow University, the Institute of Plastic Arts, Warsaw and the Academy of Fine Arts, Florence. After fleeing Poland in 1939, he lived in Switzerland, in Nice and Paris.
