Biography from Psatharis Auctions:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

George Pol Georgiou was born on the 22nd September 1901 in Famagusta, Cyprus. He was educated at the Pancyprian Gymnasium, Nicosia. On the death of his father, when he was 17, he was sent to study law at Middle Temple, London and returned after 13 years to take his place in his father’s cotton business and look after his shipping agencies and other enterprises. His education in Western Europe had been extensive and various. By 40 he had given up all other work and was a full time, self-taught painter, working with oils on wood. He had a short working life of only 25 years but that time covered Second World War, the Establishment of the State of Israel, the E.O.K.A. uprising which led to the end of empire in Cyprus and the emergence of an independent state. He married Trude Richly from Vienna, but had no children. In 1964 he laid down his brushes and he died on 2nd August, 1972. His paintings hang in major galleries around the world and in important private collections. His studio and paintings are trapped in occupied Famagusta and have not been seen since 1974.
