en 1892 à Mijni Novgorod, mort à Vanves en 1980.
Il fut très mêlé aux mouvements de l'avant-garde Russe post tsariste.
Les oeuvres de cette époques n'ont pu être retrouvées. Le musée des
Cordeliers ( Paris ) lui rendit hommage par une exposition rétrospective
pour le centenaire de sa naissance.
Born in 1892 in Mijni Novgorod, died in Vanves in 1980.
In his constant search for spirituality, Léon Zack dreamt of reconciling the three monotheisms. The oeuvre he produced became increasingly immaterial; expressionist in the figurative period between the twenties and the forties, abstract as early as 1947, geometry of space took form at the beginning of the fifties. Between 1955 and 1960, the stellar clusters placed in an infinite universe were expanded by matter, and from 1960 till his death, light in all its force heralded the apotheosis, the culminating point in his trajectory. In retrospect, his complete work could be seen as a gradual progression toward that light.
A short time before his death, the MAM of Paris, the Musée Ingres in Montauban, the Musée de Luxembourg, all gave retrospective exhibitions of his work. He was deeply involved with the Russian post-Tsarist avant-garde movements, but the works of that period, which he abandoned on leaving Russia, have never been found. The Musée des Cordeliers in Paris paid homage to Léon Zack with a retrospective exhibition on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his birth.
