Katia Palvadeau was born 1903 in Moscow. She was a painter and ceramicist.
Palvadeau exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants, where she was a member, Salon des Femmes Peintrés, and the Salon d’Automne.
She exhibited in Paris galleries in many group exhibitions. She was a late Cubist, like many of her generation, chosing not to follow the trend towards the abstract. She incorporates bold colors with subjects reminiscent of Gauguin.
Katia and her husband André Palvadeau published a book in 1953 on their theory of painting called “Fusionnism.” The book illustrates several of Katia’s paintings. In the same year she had an exhibition at Galerie Bernheim called Le Fusionisme.
Palvadeau is represented at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, and the Musée de l'Académie des Beaux Arts in Vienna, Austria.
