Henry Elinson 1935-2010 (Russia, 20th century) Original Abstract Pastel circa 1990 Superb original pastel painting by noted Russian artist Henry Elinson. An abstract masterpiece with touches of cubism. This is an extraordinary large scale pastel. Approximate dimensions 50" x 38". The frame is approximately 51.5" x 38.5". The frame is included as added support only. A contemporary frame would give this remarkable painting a new life! Elinson was born in 1935 in St. Petersburg, Russia. He studied philosophy, but by the 1960s had become consumed with art. He became a key member of the first unofficial, nonconformist art circles and avant-garde exhibitions of the Soviet underground and was questioned and blacklisted by the KGB. No longer able to exhibit his work, he immigrated to USA in 1973. He worked at Yale University and taught Russian for many years at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California. All the while, he worked relentlessly as an artist, pursuing his unique, uncompromising vision. Henry Elinson is considered an important figure in the Russian Avant-Garde movement.
