Pavel Tchelitchew ( Павел Фёдорович Челищев )
b. 1898 near Moscow / d. 1957 near Rome
Russian-born painter, set designer, and costume designer, Pavel Tchelitchew emigrated in 1920. He lived in Berlin (1921-23) and Paris (1923-34) before moving to New York, where he lived with his partner Charles Henri Ford. He died in Grottaferrata, Italy in 1957. [ source ]
Tchelitchew continuously experimented with new styles, eventually incorporating multiple perspectives and elements of surrealism and fantasy into his painting. As a set and costume designer, he collaborated with Serge Diaghliev and George Balanchine, among others.
