André LANSKOY 1902 - 1976
André Lanskoy is a Russian painter who primarily lived and worked in Paris, France. His work is strongly associated with the "tachisme" movement, a French movement characterized by large, brightly colored compositions created through the filling in of abstract linear forms.
Throughout his practice, Lanskoy created shifting landscape-portraits. He concentrated on creating patterns and rhythms of color and light in his works.
He also produced collages, mosaics, illustrated books, and tapestries.
Inspired by artists such as van Gogh, Klee and Kandinsky, Lanskoy found acceptance among the Lyrical Abstraction artists and the School of Paris painters.
