12 masterpieces by Robert Falk, one of the first artists of the Russian avant-gardeVika
Falk changed his style several times throughout his creative years. Either in fashion or in disgrace, he has always remained faithful to his art. See the work of one of the most prominent artists of the 20th century.
Robert Falk (1886–1958) is a Moscow artist of Jewish origin. He embarked on his creative path even before the 1917 revolution. Starting with impressionistic variations, he soon became a prominent figure in the Russian avant-garde and became a member of its first association - the Jack of Diamonds group, whose exhibitions also featured such legendary artists as Kazimir Malevich and Wassily Kandinsky.
Throughout his life, Falk sought his own unique language: he oscillated between Cubism and Impressionism and experimented with Expressionism, paying homage to the old masters in his essentially figurative works.
In Soviet times, he spent more than 10 years on a creative trip to Paris. Returning home in the late 1930s, he was accused of formalism and branded an "unwanted artist." Although his work was no longer exhibited, he could not help painting and therefore arranged exhibitions for his many adherents in his workshop. In the bombastic world of socialist realism, Falk remained for many a bridge to freedom and experimental thinking.
