Andre Lanskoy Signed Oil on Burlap Still Life Painting
An oil on burlap painting by the Russian artist Andre Lanskoy (1902-1976). Signed to the lower right, this vibrant painting depicts a still life composition replete with pumpkin, peppers, apples, eggplant, cucumber, and a vase of flowers arranged against draped cloth. The painting is displayed in a simple wooden frame.
Born in Moscow, Lanskoy moved to Paris in 1921 to study at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere. During this time he also studied under Sergei Jur'evic Sudejkin. In 1924, Lanskoy exhibited at the Salon d'Automne where he attracted the interest of the German art collector and art dealer Wilhelm Uhde, who was known as one of the earliest collectors of Cubist paintings by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. Also as a result of exhibiting at the Salon d'Automne, Lanskoy signed a contract with Louis Carré, a representative from the Nouvelle École de Paris. In 1925, Lanskoy took part in a group exhibition featuring Russian artists, including Robert Delaunay, Sonia Delaunay, Léopold Survage, and Ossip Zadkine. Starting in the 1940s, Lanskoy changed his painting style and painted only abstracts, which dates this painting to pre-1940s.
