About this Item

Nurullah Berk
Turkish 1906-1982
Man at the Window

signed and dated 59

oil on canvas
45 by 37cm excluding frame

Notes

After studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Istanbul, Berk relocated to Paris in the 1930s where he studied under André Lhote and Fernand Léger, as did Erik Laubscher from 1950 to 1951. Interesting comparisons can be drawn between the influence of Léger on their developing styles that utilised strong, dark outlines and flat areas of bright colour.
