Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A creator of geometrical abstract paintings, Edward Steinberg was born in 1937 in Moscow, Russia, into the family of poet, translator, and artist A.A. Steinberg.  Shortly after his birth, his father was arrested by the Stalin regime  and thrown into prison.  Upon his release, the family settled in Tarusa,  and Edward helped his parents  in their pursuits, though he had  no professional artistic education.  He lived in Tarusa from 1957 to 1961, teaching himself to paint by making copies of still lives, portraits and  landcsape paintings of Tarusa.

Moving to Moscow in 1962, he actively participated in the nonconformist movement.  In the 1970s Steinberg began creating his own version of geometrical abstraction (metageometry), where a plastic construction is seen as a consequence of a spiritual impulse.

The artist lives and works in Paris, France but also in Moscow and Tarusa. His work has been exhibited widely and is present in many museums around the world.
