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

Mikhail Larionov was born at Tiraspol, near Odessa. In 1898 he entered the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture under Isaac Levitan and Valentin Serov.  He was suspended three times for his radical outlook.  In 1900 he met Natalya Sergeevna Goncharova and formed a life-long relationship with her.

From 1902 his style was Impressionism.  After a visit to Paris in 1906 he moved into Post-Impressionism and then a Neo-primitive style, which derived partly from Russian sign painting. In 1908 he staged the Golden Fleece exhibition in Moscow, which included paintings by international avant-garde artists such as Matisse, Derain, Braque, Gauguin and Van Gogh. Other group shows promoted by him included Tatlin, Chagall and Malevich.

Larionov was a founding member of two important Russian artistic groups Jack of Diamonds (1909–1911) and the more radical Donkey's Tail (1912–1913).  He gave names to both groups. His first solo show was for one day in Moscow in 1911.

In 1913, he created Rayonism, which was the first creation of near-abstract art in Russia.  In 1915 he left Russia and worked with the ballet owner Sergei Diaghilev in Paris on the productions of the Ballets Russes.

In 2001, the Central Bank of Transnistria minted a silver coin honoring this native of today's Transnistria, as part of a series of memorable coins called The Outstanding People of Pridnestrovie.
