Jean Olin was a Polish-born artist who made his way to Paris in the early 1920s where he changed his name from Sigismund Olesiewicz to Jean Olin. His artistic career began in Eastern Europe when exhibiting his works in Crimea and at the Odessa Painter’s Salon in 1921. He then traveled through Rome and married Russian painter Barbara Konstan. The two moved to Paris in 1922 and worked for ten years at Atelier Primavera, founded by Parisian department store Le Printemps. He exhibited his paintings, illustrations, and ceramics, characterized by their use of bright color and surrealist and abstract technique, in Paris with the Salon des Indépendants, Salon d’Automne, Salon d'Art Sacré de J. Pichard and... more.
