Russian avant-garde artist, painter, grahic artist and sculptor


Vladimir Davidovich Baranov-Rossine (his Jewish name was Shulim Wolf Labe Baranov, and his nickname was Daniel Rossine) was born on January 1, 1988 in Kherson (Ukraine). 

He studied in Odessa in 1902 — 1903 and in the Petersburg Academy of Arts in 1903 — 1907. In 1910 the artist left for Paris, where he organized an exhibition in the Salon of the Independent.
In 1912 he became a dweller of the well-known Parisian house of Beehive together with Marc Chagall, Osip Tsadkin, Alexander Archipenko, Haim Sutin and took part in the Parisian art salons under the nickname of Daniel Rossine.

During World War I the artist lived in Norway, where his first personal exhibition took place.
After the February Revolution he returned to the motherland and joined in the Russian avant-garde movement. In 1918 he organized an art studio in the building of the former Imperial Academy of Arts in Petrograd.
Having developed A. N. Scriabin’s ideas, Vladimir Baranov-Rossine created “the optophone” - a type of the color piano — the device with a key system making it possible to project over three thousand hues of the colour spectrum. The inventor gave two colour visual concerts in 1923 and 1924 at V. Meyerhold Theater and the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow.
In 1925 he immigrated to France and stayed in Paris. The artist was arrested by Gestapo in 1943, deported and perished in the Auschwitz Concentration Camp.
