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

Born in the Ukraine in Mariupol, Arkhip Kuindzhi was raised in the city of Taganrog in a family supported meagerly by a father, who was Greek and a shoemaker.  Both parents died when Kuindzhi was six years old, so from a young age he worked hard to support himself by finding  jobs that included church construction, grazing animals, and helping in the shop of a corn merchant.  From 1860 to 1865, he retouched photos and then unsuccessfully tried to have his own photography shop.&nbs (showing 500 of 2156 characters).
