Biography

Born on March 3rd 1937, in Moscow, Russia. 
Died of pneumonia on March 28th 2012, at his home in Paris, France.

A creator of geometrical abstract paintings, Eduard Steinberg was born 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 Eduard 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 landscape 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 (meta-geometry), where a plastic construction is seen as a consequence of a spiritual impulse.
Since 1991, lives and works in Paris, Moscow and Tarusa.
His work has been exhibited widely and is present in many museums around the world.
