Nicolas de Staël

1914 - 1955 / French

Nocolas de Staël’s participation in the Ascher Squares project was a result of his friendship with the artists Geogres Braque and Andre Lanskoy (Both De Staël and Lanskoy were of Russian decent). While Braque never did create a design for the project he was lifelong friends with Enda Ascher (Zika Ascher’s cousin) and provided introductions to many artists in Paris. Lanskoy would also create a design for a square in 1947.
