Forced to emigrate in the aftermath of the 1917 revolurion, many Russian artists made a major contribution to the École de Paris. Many of them, such as Mikhail Larionov and Natalia Goncharova, contributed to the success of Sergei Diaghilev's Saisons Russes. The Russian painters and sculptors working in France belonged to various twentieth-century movements. Some artists worked in a traditional style. Others were followers of Impressionism, Post-Impressionism and the World of Art (Mir iskusstva). Many artists paid tribute to such innovative new movements as Cubism (Alexander Archipenko, Jacques Lipchitz, Léopold Survage and Mikhail Andreyenko-Nechitailo), Constructivism (Antoine Pevsner), classical abstraction (Wassily Kandinsky, Serge Charchoune and Sonia Delaunay) and the second wave of abstraction in the 1940s (André Lanskoy, Nicolas de Staël, Serge Poliakoff, Ida Karskaya and Anna Staritsky).
