THIS STUDY DEALS WITH THE PROBLEM OF THE FACE IN THE WORKS OF THE RUSSIAN EMIGRE PAINTER ALEXEJ JAWLENSKY (1864-1941). JAWLENSKI'S PAINTED FACES HOVER BETWEEN FIGURATION AND ABSTRACTION AS IF THERE WERE A FUNDAMENTAL INCOMPATIBILITY BETWEEN THIS LAST VESTIGE OF REPRESENTATION AND THE DEMANDS OF NONFIGURATIVE ART. AS SUCH, HIS OEUVRE PLACES THE VERY CONCEPT OF MODERNITY IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT. HOW COULD A MODERN PAINTER DEVOTE SO MUCH OF HIS OUTPUT TO THE FACE? WHY DID THIS PAINTER, WHO HAD EVERY REASON TO BECOME A PRACTITIONER OF ABSTRACTION (BEGINNING WITH HIS ARTISTIC ENVIRONMENT AND THE USE OF THE SERIES) REMAIN LARGELY ON THE SIDELINES OF THE MOVEMENT? HOW COULD A TWENTIETH-CENTURY ARTIST CHOOSE AS THE BASIC PARADIGM OF HIS WORK A FORM AS TRADITIONAL AS THE ICON? THE PRECARIOUS POSITION THAT RESULTED FROM THESE PARADOXICAL CHOICES HAS ULTIMATELY BEEN SANCTIONED BY THE HISTORY OF ART, AS DEMONSTRATED BY THE LIMITED RECOGNITION JAWLENSKY HAS RECEIVED. THE NOTIONS OF ABSTRACTION, THE FACE, AND THE ICON ARE CLOSELY INTERRELATED IN HIS WORK, BUT IT IS THE ICON, WITH ITS THEOLOGICAL IMPLICATIONS, THAT IS CENTRAL. THE ICON, BRIDGING AS IT DOES THE VISIBLE AND THE INVISIBLE, ALLOWED JAWLENSKI TO REMAIN AT THE LIMITS OF FIGURATIVE AND ABSTRACT, TO REJOIN TRADITION AT THE SAME TIME THAT HE RENEWED IT
