Russian Avant-Garde from Norway  Moscow Exhibition of Xan and Julia Krohn

Xan Krohn was a famous Norwegian painter who happened to be a significant figure of the Russian avant-garde movement in the early 20th century. 

His biography is inseparable from the history of the Russian avant-garde. Xan Krohn was acquainted with Aristarkh Lentulov, Wassily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich, and Aleksandra Exter, and exhibited jointly with the members of the World of Art and the Jack of Diamonds art groups.

The Mikhailov Gallery in Kutuzov Avenue is holding an art exhibition of Xan Krohn (1882-1959), a Norwegian painter who stayed in Russia for 12 years and lived and breathed the Russian avant-garde art from the beginning of the 20th century. 

The appearance of Xan Krohn on the art stage coincided with the birth of Norwegian modernism. He was the only Norwegian artist of his generation, trained in the Imperial Academy of Arts. Having had to leave Petersburg in 1906, Xan Krohn went to Munich, where he met Wassily Kandinsky.

The artist took part in the exhibitions of the Russian avant-garde art groups The World of Art and The Jack of Diamonds, in 1909 and 1912, respectively.
