Jules Pascin (zhül päskăN´), 1885–1930, American painter, b. Bulgaria. Born Julius Pincas, he moved to Paris in 1905. He acquired American citizenship in 1914. Essentially a draftsman, belonging to no one school, he portrayed, with flickering line and opalescent tone, the heavy sensuality of his female models. Young Woman in Red (1924; Musée d'Art Moderne, Paris) is characteristic. Pascin was a colorful and generous character in bohemian Parisian society. Two years after he returned to Paris he committed suicide.
