Sergej A. Vinogradov (1869-1938)
Sergei Vinogradov is one of the most important Russian painters of his time, whose work is a vivid picture of the development of Russian ‘plein air’-painting in the first two decades of the 20th century. During the 1880s, he was influenced by his well-known teachers Vladimir Makovsky, Vasily Polenov, Illarion Pryanishnikov and later Bogdan Villevalde, thereby Vinogradov perfected the art of narrative in painting and developed a fresh perception and richness of color in the Russian genre painting. He achieved brilliant impressionistic effects in his paintings. Vinogradov was a co-founder and active member of the Union of Russian artists, who made an important contribution to the development of the Impressionist tradition and the contemporary realism painting. His works are held by the State Tretyakov Gallery and the State Russian Museum.
