Alexei Jawlensky

Alexei Jawlensky was a Russian-born painter and graphic artist who is credited with creating some of the most important works of twentieth-century German Expressionism. He was associated with the Der Blaue Reiter group of artists, and is particularly famous for his meditative, semi-abstract portraits. Some of his most famous works include his watercolour paintings The Red Priest (1912) and Portrait of the Artist's Wife Sophia (1914), as well as the oil painting series Heads of the Sister (1914-1915). Jawlensky's works are characterized by brilliant colour harmonies, flattened forms and a spiritual content.
