"It is clear from the creations of this outstanding artist that his soul absorbs all the profound beauty of nature through his intoxicated eye, and new beauty is born from his overflowing soul..." These are the words of an enthusiastic visitor to Alexej von Jawlensky's first ever one-man show, published in the communications of the Barmer Kunstverein in 1911. Sadly, von Jawlensky (1864-1941) remains unacknowledged in Russia to this day, even though the rest of the world has long since discovered and appraised the master's oeuvre. This biography, published to accompany the exhibition held at the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg coincided with the first time that Jaswlensky's works had been exhibited in Russia. It is thought that less than twenty of the artist's works still remain in Russia, whilst the rest of his paintings are scattered throughout the world.
