Summary note
Alexej von Jawlensky (1864-1941) is a recognized master whose works are kept in museums all over the world. He was a contemporary, associate and friend of Wassily Kandinsky, Gabriele Munter, Paul Klee and many other famous artists. 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 the artists Igor Grabar, Marianne Werefkin, Dmitry Kardovsky. Therefore, this exhibition is in the context of his Russian contemporaries' works. Andreas Nesnakomoff-Jawlensky (1902-1984) was a son of Alexei Jawlensky. From his childhood, he was talented in art and many of his father's friends were amazed by his works. As an artist he was interested in nature, people and life, so his works are always full of color, sun and air.
