Born in St. Petersburg, Ivan Wyschnegradsky (1893-1979) lived most of his life in Paris where he became a leader of the microtonal music revolution of the 1920s. His beautifully crafted scores are reflected in his remarkable color theory drawings, inspired by fellow Russian-born composer Alexander Scriabin.
