Biography   Serge Gainsbourg

Born in Paris, France, Gainsbourg was a singer-songwriter, musician, poet, actor, director and artist.  He was the son of Russian Jewish emigrants, Joseph Ginsburg ( December 1898 in Kharkov, Ukraine - April 22 1971) and Olga née Bessman (1894- March 16 - 1985). His parents were Russian Jews who fled to France following the events of the 1917 Bolshevik uprising.

After studying art and teaching, he turned to painting before working as a bar pianist on the local cabaret circuit.

Born Lucien Ginsburg, he changed his first name to Serge, feeling that this was representative of his Russian background. He chose Gainsbourg as his last name in homage to the English painter, Thomas Gainsborough, whom he admired.
