Name : Andre Lanskoy
Biography :

Russian

1902-1976

 

Born to a White Russian family, Lanskoy studied at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere in Paris where he initially painted in a figurative style reminiscent of Soutine. In 1923 he exhibited at the Salon d’Automne and was championed by influential German collector/critic Wilhelm Uhde. In 1925 he had his first solo exhibition and went on to exhibit with the Delauneys, Zadkine and other Russian artists of the Ecole d’Paris. Lanskoy gradually began to give up figurative work for abstraction and by 1943 was painting only abstractions. He was a proponent of the abstracted style known as “lyrical abstraction.” Lanskoy showed in numerous exhibitions and his work is held by numerous museums. He is considered among the most important of mid-century French painters.
