He was interested in hypnosis and other spiritual practices and his paintings are said to have hypnotic expression.[1][2] Born in Saint Petersburg, Russia, to a well-to-do notary public father of Baltic German ancestry and a Russian mother,[3] he lived in various places around the world until his death in Naggar,[4] Himachal Pradesh, India.

Free: The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Offer 474 Free Art Books Online If you like reading about visual art but don’t like spending the considerable sums required to build your own library of vintage exhibition catalogues, feel free to borrow from another collector. Or rather, feel free to borrow from two collectors, both based in New York, both of some repute: The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Early last year, we announced that the Guggenheim had made 65 art catalogues [now increased to 99] available for free online, offering “an intellectual and visual introduction to the work of Alexander Calder, Edvard Munch, Francis Bacon, Gustav Klimt & Egon Schiele, and Wassily Kandinsky” as well as ” other texts (e.g., Masterpieces of Modern Art and Abstract Expressionists Imagists) that tackle meta movements and themes.” (That same post includes instructions on how to use the Guggenheim’s archive.)
