Christian Zervos

Christian Zervos (; Argostoli, Cefalonia, Greece, January 1, 1889 – September 12, 1970, Paris) was a Greek-French art historian, critic, collector, writer and publisher.

Better known as an art critic in his own right, Zervos founded the magazine ''Cahiers d'art'' (1926–1960) in Paris, and ran an art gallery.

He was a connoisseur of modern painting in his time, and of Greek art and prehistoric art. He published several books, of which the most important are: ''The Art of Crete'', ''The Art of the Cyclades'', ''L'art de l'époque du Renne en France'', and a catalogue raisonné of the work of Pablo Picasso.

M. Christian Durquet, Conservator of Patrimony at the Musée de l'Art Contemporain, ordered the establishment of a Zervos Museum at Vézelay.

Salvador Dalí once credited him with being the 'most mediocre person that ever existed.' Provided by Wikipedia
