About the Artist

Andrey Lanskoy was born in Moscow and came from an old noble family. In 1917, he studied the drawing in the workshop of decorative art, which Alexandra Exter and her student Alexander Rabinovich opened in Kiev.

In the 1920s Andrey Lanskoy emigrated to Paris, where he easily entered the artistic life of France. He entered the Académie de la Grande Chaumière, and also visited the workshop of Sergei Sudeikin.

The works written by Lansky in the 1920s in Paris are conditionally referred to "primitivistic Fauvism."

In 1923 Andrey Lanskoy participated in the famous exposition of Russian artists “Beat” in the La Licorne Gallery, followed by a series of joint exhibitions with other Russian artists: Viktor Bart, Ivan Puni, Konstantin Tereshkovich, Pavel Chelishchev and Mark Chagall.

Acquaintance with the art of Vasily Kandinsky and Paul Klee influenced the formation of Lansky as an artist.

The 1940-1970s were marked by the interest of collectors and art historians to the works of Lanskoy. In 1959 Lanskoy was invited to participate in the unusually significant documenta II exhibition in Kassel (Germany), where the main event was the proclamation of the beginning of a new era of abstract art.

Works of Andrey Lamskoy are in a major museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art (New York), Art Institute of Chicago, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (Washington), Indianapolis Museum of Art (Indianapolis), Metropole Musée d’Art Moderne (Lille).
