Biography   Nicolas Mordvinoff


Nicolas Mordvinoff 1911-1973

Mordvinoff was born on Sept. 27, 1911, in St. Petersburg, Russia, but his family fled to Finland and then France during the Russian Revolution. While a student at the University of Paris, he contributed cartoons and illustrations to various French magazines and newspapers.

He left for the South Pacific in 1934 and spent the next thirteen years island-hopping and developing his artistic talent. Tourists and islanders alike bought his paintings, sometimes paying for them with pearls. While in Tahiti, Mordvinoff met U.S. author William S. Stone and created the pictures for his books Thunder Island (1942), Pepe Was the Saddest Bird (1944), and Ship of Flame (1945).
