Zborowski, Léopold

Polish, 1889 - 1932

Léopold Zborowski moved from his native Poland to Paris as a student, probably in 1914. By 1916 he had set up his art trade, dealing first in books and prints and shortly after in struggling artists such as Modigliani, Soutine, and Utrillo. Derain painted the dealer in 1923-1924 (Michel Kellerman, Derain, Paris, 1996, volume II, no. 935). Zborowski's business thrived during the post-war art boom in Paris, but the crash of 1929 practially bankrupted him. He died in 1932.
