"Dado 1933 2010 Miodrag Djuric Watercolor And Fantastic Drawing"
Dado born Miodrag DJURIC 1933 2010 Painting and drawing on paper old engraving format 42cm on 31cm signed down and dated 96 Miodrag Djuric, called "Dado", Born October 4, 1933 in Cetinje (province of Montenegro, Yugoslavia) and died in Pontoise , France, November 27, 20101, is a painter, draftsman, engraver, sculptor Yugoslav. Arrived in France in 1956, he was quickly noticed by Jean Dubuffet who introduced him to Daniel Cordier. It will become its main merchant for several years and will participate in the establishment of its international reputation. From Cetinje to Paris [edit | edit the code] Born of a mother who is a professor of biology and an official father2, Dado is, in his childhood, confronted with the horrors of the Second World War. Cetinje - his place of birth - a small town in southern Montenegro, remains deeply rooted in him, be it by the reliefs, the soil, the mountainous landscape of friable limestone, or by the monstrosities inflicted on men by other men. - monstrosities that have been told to him and that there are views3. Very affected by the death of his mother in 1944, when he was only eleven years old, Dado left school and did not resume it until 1947 to join the Herceg Novi School of Fine Arts, then that of Belgrade. At the end of his studies, in 1956, he decided to move to Paris4. From Paris to Herouval [edit | Dado arrives in Paris on August 15, 1956. He knows almost nobody, does not speak or reads French. The language, as difficult as it is, he learns quickly enough by reading the headlines of France-Soir and making friends. He begins to work on building painting sites. Very quickly, he obtained a job as assistant in the lithography workshop of Gérard Patris. There he meets Jean Dubuffet, the painter of the "art brut", who already enjoys a certain artistic notoriety. Entirely seduced by the work of the young artist, Dubuffet introduced him to Daniel Cordier who became his main dealer5. Cordier has the merit of being the one who offered their first personal exhibition to many artists today recognized such as Bernard Réquichot, Robert Rauschenberg, Öyvind Fahlström, or others like Dubuffet or Michaux6. Then begins the great artistic adventure of Dado. Cordier gets him a room in Paris so that he is better able to paint. However, Dado feels bad in the universe of the city, he yearns for more tranquility7: "In the chaos that is a big city, personally, I found myself completely broke, torn. I could not see anything, really, I walked in the street but in parts, squarely. Shit. I waded in a kind of shit, I saw nothing8. Daniel Cordier proposes to him to buy for a symbolic sum an old mill which he owns at Hérouval, on the commune of Montjavoult (in the French Vexin), near the Boisgeloup of Picasso and not far from Gisors; proposition that Dado hastens to accept by coming to settle there quickly. In 1962, his work becoming known across the Atlantic, Dado is in New York for three months. There he meets Hessie, a visual artist he marries. They settle together in Hérouval, where Dado receives artist friends like Hans Bellmer-Unica Zürn. From Dado and Hessie will grow their five children9. In 1964, Dado exhibited for the third and last time at the Daniel Cordier Gallery in Paris (the previous time being three years ago), which announced its closure soon after. The suite consists of a whole series of meetings that the artist makes through his friends and that will allow him to work with gallery owners such as André François-Petit, Isy Brachot, Jean-François Jaeger at the Jeanne Bucher Gallery, the Aberbach brothers in New York, or Marianne and Pierre Nahon at the Beaubourg Gallery. However, in the last years of his life, the artist no longer has an official gallerist and works outside any trading system. surrealist
