André Lanskoy was contemporary painter and printmaker born in Russia. He lived and worked in France and he is associated with the School of Paris and Tachisme. His figurative pictures inspired by Van Gogh, Matisse and Soutine, from his early period, turned into abstract expressions and he became one of the most important exponents of “lyric abstraction” within the “École de Paris”. This is an abstract composition with multicolored shapes on a background which imitates some texture. Lanskoy didn’t express the world around him with abstract forms, he wanted to shows us how different colors and their intensities affect each other and affect the forms themselves.
