Biography:
Alexei Jawlensky originally served in the Russian Imperial Guard before deciding to pursue an art career. He attended the St.Petersburg Academy and then studied in Munich alongside Wassily Kandinksy who encouraged him to paint in the Fauvist style. Jawlensky then traveled to Paris in 1913, and adopted Cubism after seeing the work of Matisse and Picasso. After moving to Wiesbaden, Germany, he joined the Blaue Vier with Kandinsky, Klee, and Feininger. Jalwensky’s paintings evolved from portraits and religious pieces to abstract and geometric designs.
