Biography from Auktionshaus Dr. Fischer:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Juon studied from 1892 to 1898 at the Moscow School of Art, among others with Konstantin Savitsky, Konstantin Korovin and Abram Arkhipov.  In several trips to Western Europe and Paris he came into contact with the works of Impressionists such as Camille Pissarro, but retained his own characteristic style. 

In Soviet times, Juon was  director of the art theoretical research at the Institute of the Academy of Arts
from 1948 to 1950.  From 1956-1958 he was First Secretary of the Soviet Artists' Union.  In 1943 he was awarded the Stalin Prize.

began his artistic work as an Impressionist landscape and genre painter with a Symbolist coloring.  He also mixed in his landscape paintings elements of Palech- and icon painting.
