MR. JERECZEK IS A WONDERFUL IMPRESSIONISTIC ARTIST WHO WAS BORN IN GERMANY IN 1935. JERECZEK SPENT SOME TIME AS A SCULPTOR'S APPRENTICE BEFORE DECIDING TO STUDY ART AT THE ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS IN DUSSELDORF UNDER PROFESSOR DRAKE, HENZE, WERNER AND THEO BALDEN. HE CONTINUED HIS STUDIES IN FRANKFURT UNDER PROFESSOR EUGEN VON BARUM-SCKRET AND WERNER SEPPEL.
JERECZEK'S BALLROOM SCENES TAKE ONE BACK TO ANOTHER TIME OF ELEGANCE, A TIME WHEN BALLROOM DANCING WAS WHAT AN OCCASION ENTAILED. LOCATED IN A BEAUTIFUL GRAND OPERA HOUSE WITH TITANIC STAIRCASES, WHICH FLOWED DOWN THROUGH THE NEOCLASSICAL COLUMNS TO DANCERS BY THE GRAND PIANOS. THE EVENING LIGHTING GLOWING THROUGHOUT THE PAINTING. THE PAINTINGS LITERALLY CAPTURING THE VIEWER, PULLING THEM INTO THE DANCE, FEELING THE SWIRLS OF THE DRESSES AS THE DANCERS DANCE WITH THE MUSIC. JERECZEK'S BALLROOM SCENES BRING ONE BACK TO TIMELESS ROMANCE. HE IS ALSO A MASTER AT CAPTURING THE BEAUTIFUL SCENES OF ELEGANT CAFES AND FLOWER MARKETS IN THE MOST ELEGANT OF PLAY LANDS OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS IN PARIS, MONACO, AND PLACES OF ONE'S IMAGINATION AS WELL. TO SIT AT A CAF… ON A SUNNY DAY WATCHING THE WORLD GO BY. IN PARIS, BY THE OPERA OR THE MADELEINE. PERHAPS BY THE SEINE LOOKING AT THE NOTRE DAME.
JERECZEK HAS BEEN CAPTURING THE IMAGINATIONS OF COLLECTORS OVER MANY YEARS AND IS A HIGHLY REGARDED ARTIST BOTH IN EUROPE AND THE UNITED STATES.
CHRISTIAN JERECZEK HAS ENJOYED A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ARNOT ART DEALERS IN NEW YORK SPANNING TWO GENERATIONS.
