Eugene Lansere


Eugene Lansere

(b Pavlovsk, 4 Sept 1875; d Moscow, 13 Sept 1946).

Painter and draughtsman. From 1892 to 1895 he studied in St Petersburg at the School of the Society for the Encouragement of the Arts. He also spent the winters of the years 1895–7 in Paris, attending the studio of Filippo Colarossi ( fl from 1884) and the Académie Julian. The greatest influence on his art, however, was Benois, whose reconstructions of life in the 18th century have much in common with those of Lansere. Through Benois he became a member of the World of Art (Mir Iskusstva) group in 1899. In the gouache Empress Yelizaveta Petrovna at Tsarskoye Selo (1905; Moscow, Tret’yakov Gal.), Lansere used a linear pattern and bright colours to re-create a scene from 18th-century Russia, much as Benois was doing at that time for life in 18th-century.
