This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Alexis Matthew Podchernikoff was born in Vladimir, Russia on Feb. 26, 1886.  Podchernikoff first studied art with his grandfather Dmitri Zolotarieff and later with Ilya Repin and Verestchagin.  In Moscow he was awarded a gold medal and his work My Beloved Russian Woods was purchased by the Royal Art Commission.  After the Russo-Japanese War, he immigrated to the U.S.  Although 18 years his senior, he married Ida Working in Minnesota in 1901 and moved to San Francisco in 1903. 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 20 years of his life in southern California, he returned often to San Francisco to paint scenes of Marin and the northern coast.  His style and palette are often compared to those by Corot.  His last years were spent in Pasadena where he died of tuberculosis on Oct. 31, 1933. 

Exhibited:  California Artists, Golden Gate Park Museum, 1915; Hatfield Gallery (Los Angeles), 1925; Ebell Club (Los Angeles), 1927; Breakers Club (Santa Monica), 1930.

Biography from William A. Karges Fine Art - Beverly Hills:
Alexis Podchernikoff was born in Vladimir, Russia, in 1886 to a family of artists. Podchernikoff immigrated to the U.S. in 1905, settling in San Francisco. Several years later he was convinced by an art dealer to move to the Santa Barbara area, where he specialized in traditional romantic, realist landscapes of the Montecito area. Podchernikoff lived his final years in Pasadena, where he died in 1933.
