Alexej von Jawlensky (1864-1941) is a recognized master whose works are kept in many museums all over the world. He was a contemporary, associate and friend of Wassily Kandinsky, Gabriele Munter, Paul Klee and many other famous artists of the first two decades of XX century. In Russia he studied with Ilya Repin and admired the works of Valentine Serov, Konstantin Korovin and other masters of Russian realism and impressionism. In Germany since 1896, he had continued studies at Ashbe art school, where his friends also were – artists Igor Grabar, Marianne Werefkin, Dmitry Kardovsky. Therefore his creativity on this exhibition in the context of his Russian contemporaries’ works. Since the beginning of 1900’s he experienced a variety of influences in art, but he still remained completely original artist with his own unique style and special themes.

In the last period of his creative activity, he turned to religious iconography and created a series of works inspired by icon painting.

Andreas Nesnakomoff-Jawlensky (1902-1984) was a son of Alexei Jawlensky. From his childhood, he was very talented in art and many of his father’s friends were really amazed by his works. As an artist he was interested in the world around — the nature, people and life, so his works are always full of color, sun and airspace. His art is very distinctive and original and represents a very interesting page in the European art of the middle of the XX century.
