Vladimir Baranoff-Rossiné, a Ukrainian-Russian artist, is an eminently representative figure of the twentieth-century artist. Born into a Jewish family in Kherson, Ukraine, in 1889, he was a musician, painter and avant-garde sculptor (cubo-futurist, cubist, orphist, abstract, biomorphist and synesthesist). He died in Auschwitz in January 1944.

When we look at Baranoff-Rossiné's work as a whole, we are struck by its protean character. The most varied periods follow one another, sometimes overlapping, each so different in style that it is impossible to speak of "transition" or "evolution".
An alchemist of painting and a tireless experimenter, Vladimir Baranoff-Rossiné never stopped creating, inventing and finding original formulas. As a creator of his time, he never confined himself to a single formula, constantly keeping his inventive genius at bay.
It is undoubtedly Picasso who single-handedly sums up in exemplary fashion the complexion of the creative artist from 1910 onwards - a completely new complexion compared with the past history of European art: having rejected four centuries of revivalist academicism, having wiped the slate clean of conventional codes of representation, the twentieth-century artist found himself condemned to a tireless quest for ever-new processes and ways of apprehending nature or the world. He became a Proteus, as André Malraux said of Picasso in particular.
