Konstantin Korovin
1862-1939

Russia’s leading Impressionist painter entered the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in 1875, where he studied under Vasily Perov and Alexei Savrasov. There he became friends Valentin Serov and Isaac Levitan, part of circle of intellectuals and cultural figures in which Korovin moved until his exile. Finishing his studies in 1885, Korovin travelled to Paris and Spain. ‘Paris was a shock for me … Impressionists… in them I found everything for which I was chided back home in Moscow,’ he later wrote. Korovin formed part of the Abramtsevo Circle, the artists’ colony outside Moscow, and became a member of the World of Art Group in 1890. Widely travelled, Korovin visited the Russian Far North, Scandinavia and all parts of Europe. >> Read more
