Biography Joseph Levin
Joseph Levin was an artist in New York and Paris, born in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1894 and died in New York in 1979. His abstract paintings reflect the influence of the avant-garde movements of these great centers of art. He was promoted by the famous French art critic George Waldemar who is noted for discovering Chaim Soutine.
While living in Russia, Levin was influenced by the pioneer Russian abstract painter Kasimir Malevich (1878-1935) who was first to exhibit abstract paintings in 1913 and published Nonobjective World in 1926 describing his Suprematist theories. Malevich's influence on avante-garde artists was so important that some art historians claim without Malevich there would be no Marcel Duchamp.&nbs
