His exciting images narrate the play of life, adventure, joy, sadness, human being fragmented into the whirl of events. It is a painting depicting reality with multidimensional approach, realism, humor, imagination and above all “improvisation”, a title given by the painter in several paintings.
The painter and theoretician of art, one of the greatest artists of the 20th century who defined abstract art with his work, was the only child of a wealthy family and was born in Moscow in 1866. His father was a tea trader and when the family moved to Odessa, little Vasilie lived the separation of his parents and his nurture was taken over by his aunt.
During his school years he did private lessons in music, painting and drawing, while at the age of 20 he went to Moscow to study in law and finance, and at the same time he painted uninterruptedly. A few years later he became a member of the Union of Lawyers while he was a lecturer at the Moscow University.
