It is noticeable that those artists who have been remembered by posterity as the creators of the most colorful and joyful images have often themselves led a desolate life into poverty and misery (or something perceived). Vincent van Gogh is a prominent example, Niko Pirosmani from Georgia - a pioneer of "naive painting" - another.

Pirosmani was the son of a peasant family in the district of Kakheti, in the extreme east of the present state of Georgia in the Caucasus. As an eight-year-old brought by his older sister to Tbilisi (the parents had died early), he had to work as a servant at the age of ten. He learned to read and write Russian and Georgian and taught himself to paint. This passion never left his life.

He initially seemed to be laying down a classic self-made career. After his time as a domestic help, he became a railway conductor; In 1893 he founded a dairy and ran it until about the turn of the century. But then he left his bourgeois existence. As a homeless person in the Tbilisi railway station district, he stayed afloat on odd jobs and received food and sleep in restaurants by "paying" the owners with paintings. In April 1918 he died lonely and helpless in a cellar. Not even his grave was registered. In those bitter months of lost war, the Spanish flu and the double revolution, hundreds of thousands of Russians died of hunger and exhaustion.

In these fierce times, people could use every cheer, and Niko Pirosmani delivered them. Simple, clear forms, colorful color contrasts - Pirosmani painted people, nature and landscapes, for example, if a little boy understood them, and thus became a pioneer of "Naïve painting". One of his main themes was the society of his time, the contrast between rich and poor. Although present in Moscow salons since 1913 (his friends organized an exhibition in 1916 with Pirosmani's complete works in Tbilisi), this did not relieve him of his desolate situation. Maybe he did not want to or can not live differently? We do not know it.

But we know that the French singer Margot des Sèvres has been immortalized by Pirosmali's image "The singer Margarita", and that a deer painted by him today adorns the back of the Georgian 1-Lari note - Pirosmani himself paraded on the front. He himself was immortalized as a painting, by Pablo Picasso. Well over a hundred of his paintings on canvas, cardboard or even iron plates have found a home in the National Gallery of Tbilisi and are repeatedly presented at exhibitions around the world. © Meisterdrucke
