Mikhail Larionov (Russian / French, 1881 - 1964)
Larionov was born near Odessa and studied art in Moscow, where he met his lifelong companion Natalya Goncharova. As a leading figure in the Russian avant garde, Larionov helped develop the Russian neo-primitive movement. He first visited France in 1906 and was influenced by the fauvist artists, combining elements of Fauvism with Russian artistic forms such as icon painting, folk art and woodblock prints to produce the neo-primitivist style. After being invalided out of the army in 1915, Larionov lived in Switzerland before finally settling permanently in Paris in 1919.
