Russian-French artist Iwan Puni, better known as Jean Pougny, was born in Russian Finland and was the grandson of Italian composer Cesare Pugni
In 1915 Pougny co-founded the Supremus group of artists – better known as the Suprematists.
Disillusioned by the new Soviet regime, Puni and his wife, artist and poet Kseniya Boguslavskaya, emigrated from Russia in 1919, returning briefly to Finland. In 1920 however they arrived in Berlin where they stayed for four years
Moving to Paris in 1924, Pougny’s powerful artistic style began to mutate towards a unique variant on Impressionism.
