Alexis Matthew PODCHERNIKOFF  1886 — 1933

Олексій ПОДЧЕРНИКОВ • Алексей Матвеевич ПОДЧЕРНИКОВ

Alexis Matthew Podchernikoff was born in Vladimir, Russia in 1886. He first studied art with his grandfather Dmitri Zolotarieff and later with Ilya Repin and Vereshchagin. In Moscow he was awarded a gold medal and his work ‘My Beloved Russian Woods’ was purchased by the Royal Art Commission. In 1905 after the Russo-Japanese War Podchernikoff immigrated to the United States of America and settled in San Francisco. In 1913 an art dealer from Santa Barbara convinced Podchernikoff to move there. A painting of his Santa Barbara studio appeared on the front cover of Literary Digest, March 10, 1928. Although he spent the last twenty years of his life in Southern California, he returned often to San Francisco to paint scenes of Marin and the northern coast. He is well known in California for his landscapes done in the manner of Corot. Podchernikoff`s last years were spent in Pasadena, California. The artist died in California in 1933. His works are held in The Irvine Museum, The Oakland Museum and The Royal Art Commission, Moscow.
