Konstantin KOROVIN (1861-1939) ✿

Konstantin Alekseevič Korovin / Константиин Алексейевич Коройвин (1861-1939) was a Russian painter and scenographer, exponent of impressionism.
His course of study was ennobled by his attendance at the Moscow Institute of Fine Arts, where he was a pupil of Vasilij Dmitrievič Polenov and Aleksej Kondrat'evič Savrasov.
Korovin's artistic theories concerning the chromatic and emotional elements of folklore were perfected with his participation in the World of Art movement (Mir Iskusstva) and with stays in Spain and France.
Korovin's style and pictorial taste were well exemplified in the works presented both at the 1896 Nizhny Novgorod Exposition and at the 1900 Paris Exposition.
As a set designer, Korovin distinguished himself in collaborations with the Mamontov Theater and the Bolshoi in Moscow, with the Imperial Theater of St. Petersburg and in Paris with the Russian Ballets of Sergej Pavlovič Djagilev. Its scenographies were characterized by the 'barbaric' and Djagilevian style.
A good part of his works are preserved and exhibited in the Mamontov Gallery and the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow.
