  • PEVSNER, Antoine
    1886-1962






    Artist



  • Antoine Pevsner was Gabo's elder brother. He was born in Russia and trained in Kiev, where the Byzantine works had a profound effect on him. In 1911 he went to Paris and was influenced by Cubist ideas, but in 1914 he joined his brother in Norway and in 1917 they returned to Revolutionary Russia, hoping for a revolution in the arts. He was made a professor and worked with Tatlin and Malevich, going on to Constructivism. The growing rejection of abstract art by the Soviet authorities drove him back to Paris in 1923.

    There are works by him there (Mus. d'Art Mod.) and also in London (Tate) and New York (M of MA).
