Biography   Boris Anisfeld


Born in Russia, Boris Anisfeld was a sculptor, lithographer, painter, illustrator, set designer and long-time teacher at the Art Institute of Chicago.  From 1901 to 1909, he studied at the Odessa School of Art in the Ukraine and at the Imperial Academy of Arts in Petrograd.  Among his influences were Ilya Repin, realist painter and sculptor, and Igor Grabar, an impressionist painter, who encouraged Anisfeld to work in a style that led to Anisfeld's painting being accepted by Sergei Diaghilev for a 1905-1906 exhibition in Russia and Paris.

Anisfeld's career evolved from book design and illustration to stage design.  In 1911, Diaghilev, Director of the Ballet Russe, chose Anisfeld to design the production of SadkoDisplaying 750 of 1620 characters.
