Charchoune arrived in Paris the day before the 14th of July 1912, ready to progress in his Art. During the summer he attended courses at the Russian Academy on the Avenue du Maine. The retrospective exhibition is devoted to the full scope of the career of Serge Charchoune.
It highlights its involvment with Cubism, Dadaism, Ornamental Cubism, Purism and his evolution into a neo-symbolism abstraction inspired, by music and mysticism.
