COMPOSITION
signed with initials in Cyrillic and dated '1974-75' l.r.; further signed, titled and dated 'dek.yan.-1974-1975' on the reverse
oil over pencil on canvas

The calmness conveyed by Steinberg’s geometric designs is diametrically opposite to the jarring paintings of the abstract Russian avant-garde artists of the 1910s, to whom he is often named as a successor. The dissidence of his art is arguably in this very sense of other-worldly and quasi-religious serenity. His first solo exhibition took place at the State Tretyakov Gallery in 1992. Steinberg spent the last twenty years of his life between Paris and Tarusa, south of Moscow.
