Collection: André Lanskoy   1902 - 1976 

André Lanskoy was a Russian painter and printmaker who worked in France. He is associated with the School of Paris and Tachisme, an abstract painting movement that began during the 1940s. Lanskoy spent a lot of time at museums and was influenced by James Ensor’s and Vincent van Gogh’s use of color.

In 1923, he participated in his first group exhibitions of Russian painters at the La Licorne Gallery in Paris.  In 1925, Lanskoy had a solo exhibition and his works were acquired by museums and important private collectors. After 1937, his paintings began a transition towards abstraction and he studied both Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky.
