Cows – Icons

At once regal and monumental, these hyperrealistic cows, like modern-day madonnas, are portrayed against a neutral background. They appear magnified, the object of our fascinated gaze, when usually they are the ones gazing at us as we pass.



Models, studies, or sources of inspiration, boxes are a recurring theme in Sacha Schwarz’s works, an embodiment of his creative process...


Women portraits & Bible images

Portraits of anonymous women, biblical scenes, all on a wooden support, a return to basics…

Small drawings

New series of small drawings, acrylic and other techniques on paper, 10cm x 15cm frames, mainly animals

auto-portrait 2


Sacha Schwarz pokes fun at himself in a series of self-portraits in the style of the great masters. Whether in the guise of St Sebastian, a Greek god, or simply as himself, an artist, standing against a gilt background, Sacha uses the self-portrait as an outlet for his boundless imagination, a trigger to push back his limits.



The power and beauty of men in movement against a gold-leafed background. Inspired by Eadwaerd Muybridge’s pioneering work, The Human Figure in Motion (1887). Grace, vitality, virility.

singe & chat fable de La Fontaine


Inspired by the Fables of Jean de la Fontaine, this series of paintings teems with clever animals, hand-written text, and precious flashes of metal and fabric. Reminiscent of medieval art, they deploy humour and simple imagery to convey a serious message.
