Albert Bitran (Instanbul 1929 - Paris 2018). In 1948, at nineteen, he arrives in Montparnasse, knowing already that he wants to become a painter, not an architect. Leaving the school after 8 months, he moves into a studio at the American Pavillon of the Cité Universitaire, where he joins the circle of expatriated artists. Bitran begins to explore a strict, geometric language. Jean-Robert Arnaud, who just opened his gallery in Saint Germain des Prés the Avant-Garde “place to be", organizes in 1951, Bitran's first solo exhibition. In 1958, Albert Bitran becomes French citizen, marries Claude Ledoux, moves to a studio, Paris where he joins the painters Marfaing, Doucet, Gillet, Corneille, Bengt Lindström, Tabuchi, at the Galerie Ariel, where Jean Pollack will show Bitran's work during the next forty years. In the Netherlands he exhibits regularly, first at Nova Spectra in The Hague, then, from 1971 on, in Amsterdam at the Gallery Martin de Boer. In the beginning of this century, Bitran participates in more than fifty exhibitions worldwide like from Köln to Mexico and from Istanbul to London. He dies at the age of 89 in 2018.
