  • Throughout his life, Eugen Gabritschevsky (1893-1979) displayed a precocious passion for the natural sciences, particularly entomology. Born in Russia, he completed advanced degrees in biology and genetics in Moscow, before pursuing postdoctoral studies in 1925 at Columbia University. Soon after he joined the Pasteur Institute in Paris in 1927, his successful career was cut short by the deterioration of his mental health into schizophrenia, leading to his admission into a psychiatric hospital in Germany in 1931 where he spent the next 45 years. There, and for the rest of his life, Gabritschevsky elaborated a prolific, refined, and heterogeneous body of work—gouaches, drawings, and watercolors on paper— imbued with his early scientific interests, observation skills, and a propensity for experimentation. His incredible creative body of work was both admired, collected and championed by the likes of Jean Dubuffet among others.
