Anatole Krasnyansky: "A man full of life and energy."

as a set designer for ABC, MGM,
Universal, Paramount and Twen-
tieth-Century Fox. After a few
Academy Award shows and sev-
eral variety shows, he returned
to his first passion — painting.
By the mid 1980s, Mr. Kras-
nyansky's surrealistic paintings
were selling for as much as
$25,000. Painting on a Japanese
rag paper mounted on canvas, he
worked with two brushes to give
his pieces a sense of depth and
His work shows the influences
of Picasso and Matisse.
Unlike most surrealists, Mr.
Krasnyansky's figures maintain
a loose resemblance to human fig-
ures, such as clowns, musicians,
fools and actors. Overall, his style
is similar to fellow Russian artist
Chemiakin, although Mr. Chemi-
akin's images tend to be more
sarcastic and satirical, Mr.
Scaglione said.

The 30 pieces of original work
created for the Park West show
took Mr. Krasnyansky more than
a year to create.
"He was working seven days a
week, 16 hours a day toward the
end," Mr. Scaglione said.
Because of the "more realistic"
art market, Mr. Krasnyansky's
work sells for a third of the price
demanded in the 1980s. But Mr.
Scaglione expects the prices of
Mr. Krasnyansky's paintings to
increase by 40 percent within a
year, and double within the next
five years.
The remaining works from the
Krasnyansky show will hang
alongside assorted pieces by Cha-
gall, Dali, Darer and Picasso. On
April 27, the new works of Peter
Max will open at Park West. Mr.
Max's exhibit is sponsored by the
American Red Cross in associa-
tion with the upcoming Rhapsody
in Red Ball. 0
