Biography   Ernst Iosifovich Neizvestny


The New York Times, obituary, August 17, 2016

Ernst Neizvestny, a Russian Sculptor Who Clashed With Khrushchev, Dies at 91, By William Grimes,

Ernst Neizvestny, a sculptor whose ventures into modernism put him at odds with the Soviet cultural authorities and led to a memorable confrontation with Nikita S. Khrushchev in 1962, died on Aug. 9 in Stony Brook, N.Y. He was 91.

His death was confirmed by his wife, Anna Graham.

As cultural policy in the post-Stalin era began to loosen, Mr. Neizvestny (pronounced nyai-eez-VYEST-nee) and a dozen abstract painters were invited to show their work at a large exhibition in Moscow to mark the 30th anniversary of the Moscow section of the Soviet Artists’ Union.
