Modern maybe but not even slightly contemporary. The difficulty is that he wrote the Seagull in 1896 making it technically classic I believe but the seagull boomed in Moscow when Stanislavski redirectied the play in 1902 I think and so he was famous just at the start of the modern period.
But no not contemporary.
