André LANSKOY (1902-1976)

Born in Moscow in 1902, André Lanskoy studied, like many children of noble families of the time, at the School of Pages and then at the Cadet School of Sint-Petersburg.

After the revolution of 1917 he immigrated to Paris in 1921 where he began his career as a painter. Starting as a figurative painter, Lanskoy devoted himself to abstraction from the 1950s until the end of his life. Represented by the Louis Carré gallery, he enjoyed great success during his lifetime. His works can be found in the most important museums in the world, including the National Museum of Modern Art in Paris, Center Pompidou, Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Modern Art in Toledo, etc.
