About the Artist
Abraham A. Manievich was known as a Post- Impressionist landscape painter. His subjects were Ukrainian and Lithuanian village and country scenes, and street scenes of Moscow, Kiev, and Petrograd. He painted in a bold Fauvist style, and exhibited with the important French Fauvists. He received critical acclaim for his first solo exhibition at the famed Durand-Ruel Gallery in Paris, 1913.
He was born 1881 in Russia, and died 1942 in the Bronx, New York. He emigrated to the United States in 1922, settling in the Bronx. He painted regional scenes in Pittsburgh, villages along the Hudson River and in Connecticut, and winter scenes in Canada. His exhibitions were praised for their lyrical yet vigorous brushwork and expressive use of color.
