Gudiashvili Lado Davidovich

Gudiashvili Lado Davidovich (1896–1980).

He was a 20th-century Georgian painter. Gudiashvili was born in Tiflison into a family of a railroad employee. He studied in the Tiflis school of sculpture and fine art (1910-1914), and later in Ronson's private academy in Paris (1919-1926). For a while, Gudiashvili belonged to a group of Georgian poets called "The Blue Horns" (1914-1918), who were trying to connect organically the Georgian national flavor with the creative structure of French symbolism. In Paris, he was a constant customer of the famous "La Ruche," a colony of painters where he met I. Zuloaga, Amedeo Modigliani, Natalia Goncharova, and Mikhail Larionov. Gudiashvili's work was greatly influenced by Niko Pirosmanashvili. Gudiashvili also worked as a monumentalist, painting anew the Kashveti church in Tbilisi in 1946, for which he was expelled from the Communist Party and fired from the Tbilisi academy of fine arts, where he had been teaching since 1926. In the voluminous "antifascist cycle" of Indian ink drawings Gudiashvili became a kind of "Georgian Goya": beastlike monsters surrounded the ruins of art and naked "goddesses" conveyed the ideas of the death of culture. Lado Gudiashvili worked also as a book illustrator, cinema and theater decorator.
