PROVENANCE Acquired directly from the artist`s family. LOT NOTES Mikhail Tarkhanov (1888-1962) was a Russian avant-garde graphic artist known for his abstract, water-based textured compositions and photograms. Tarkhanov was one of only three known Russian artists (with Lissitzky and Zimin) making experimental photograms (photos without camera) in the 1920s. Each photograph was a unique piece. He graduated from the Stroganov Moscow State University of Arts and Industry in 1915, later enrolling at VKhUTEMAS, where he studied under Vasili Kandinsky and Vladimir Favorsky From 1932 until his death, the exhibition of abstract art was banned, so he secretly pursued his abstract work while working officially for various Soviet institutions.
