Born in Bulgaria, as Jules Pincas, of a Spanish-Jewish father and Serbian-Italian mother, Pascin moved to Vienna where he started his studies as a painter. After passing by Berlin and Munich, where, he was a contributor to the satirical review ‘, he settled in Paris in 1905. Here he changed his name to Pascin. During the First World War he lived in America, where he adopted American citizenship.


In 1918 he married Hermine David, a talented painter herself and returned to Paris in 1922. They rented a studio in Montmartre, center of Bohemian Paris where he struck up friendships with Chagall, Soutine, Modigliani and Foujita. His models were the local dancer girls and prostitutes and his paintings soon made him a leader of the École de Paris.


For several years he worked as a book illustrator and illustrated books such as: Abecedaire des filles et de l’enfant cheri and Aux lumieres de Paris of P. Mac Orlan, Trois petites filles dans la rue of A. Warnod and Cendrillon of de Perrault. In 1930, on the eve of his ever solo exhibition at the Galerie Georges Petit, Paris, a tormented Pascin committed suicide. Several of the galleries in Paris closed on the day of his funeral as a sign of respect.
