André Lanskoy  (French, 1902-1976) 

whitespace
André Lanskoy (French, 1902–1976) is associated with the post-war school of Tachism (lyrical Abstract painting). Lanskoy was born in Moscow, but left Russia after the Russian Revolution, moving to Paris in 1921. He studied at the famously progressive Académie de la Grande Chaumière, painting portraits and still lifes in vivid colors with thick applications of paint, inspired by Vincent van Gogh, Chaïm Soutine, and Henri Matisse. He was accepted into the Paris Salon d’Automne and exhibited with them in the mid-1920s, where his work was noticed by German art critic and dealer Wilhelm Uhde, who arranged his first solo exhibition. Lanskoy continued to exhibit his works with other Russian painters and in Parisian salons, enjoying success as his work was acquired by museums and collectors. In the 1930s, Lanskoy abandoned his representational works for abstraction, influenced by the paintings of Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee. He concentrated on creating patterns and rhythms of color and light in his works, and also produced collaged and mosaic pieces, illustrated books, and designed tapestries. Beginning in the 1950s, Lanskoy exhibited his work internationally to critical acclaim, at institutions including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Royal Academy of Arts in London, and documenta in Kassel, Germany. He died in 1976 in Paris.
