Leonard Turzhansky: thinking and feeling through color

Exponent of Russian impressionist painting, Leonard Viktorovich Turzhansky (1874, Yekaterininburg ⸺ 1945, Moscow) «can rightly be considered an heir to Levitan’s “landscape of mood”. In his works, he expresses profound emotions, albeit held back and never overflowing. A man of few words, Turzhansky is laconic even in figurative means, preferring spacious compositions with few objects. A painter by nature, Turzhansky thinks and feels through color” the art historian Natalya Stankevich writes about him.
