Mikhailovich Lanskoy

Russia • 1902−1976

The Russian count Lanskoy graduated from the Page Corps; received in 1918 in Kiev, in the workshop of Alexandra Exter, painting lessons. After fleeing from Crimea to Constantinople, and then to Paris, for some time he tried himself in a motley figurative painting - scenes in the interior, portraits and other things in a primitivistic spirit - but in the 30s and 40s he firmly engaged in no less colorful abstraction ( under the influence of Kandinsky and Klee, as he himself admitted).
