Biography Alexander Buchkuri
Alexander Buchkuri, who was born and died in Voronezh, studied at the Imperial Academy under Ilya Repin, who wrote of him: "he is an outstanding artist and I am proud that he was my pupil" (see M.V. Ilinsky, A.A. Buchkuri, Life and Work, Voronezh, 1958, p.5).
The offered lot is one of a series of peasant girls he painted in the village of Podgorny, near Voronezh, where the artist lived and worked after moving there from St. Petersburg in 1907; some of these were exhibited in London (1910), Munich (1911) and Venice (1913).
Buchkuri, together with his wife, was murdered by the Nazis in Voronezh in 1942 in a spontaneous mass execution in the middle of the city.
