    Note:
    André Lanskoy, son of Comte Lanskoy, was born in Moscow on March 31, 1902. During the course of the Russian revolution, Lanskoy fled to Kiev in 1919, and soon thereafter moved to Paris where he would remain the rest of his life. Much of his work was inspired by Matisse, Van Gogh, and Soutine’s figurative and still life paintings. He would continuously strive to create new forms of expression by experimenting with mosaic, collage, tapestry and even book illustration. By the late 1930s, Lanskoy began to detach himself from figurative painting and eventually worked exclusively in the abstract.

    Lanskoy is highly regarded as being one of the preeminent protagonists of lyrical abstraction. This form of expression sought to expand the boundaries of abstraction by focusing on the painterly and expressionist aspects of the pictorial plane. Most importantly, Lanskoy, like many of the lyrical abstractionists, focused on repetitive compositional strategies to portray a consistency in surface tension.
