Moise Kisling was born in Krakow, Poland, and studied at the Krakow Academy of Fine Arts until 1910, when he moved to Montparnasse in Paris. In 1913 he took a studio in Montparnasse, where he lived for the next 27 years. His studio welcomed the ‘upper crust’ of the art world: Modigliani, firstly, but also famous writers like Cocteau, Radiguet or Max Jacob, giving Kisling the name of ‘King of Montparnasse’.
