Nicholai Petrovitch Gloutchenko

Biography from Shapiro Auctions New York

A graduate of the Academy of Art in Berlin (1924), from 1925 Nicholai Petrovitch Glushchenko worked in Paris where he immediately attracted the attention of French critics.  From the Neue Sachlichkeit style of his Berlin period he changed to Post-Impressionism.

Besides numerous French, Italian, Dutch, and (later) Ukrainian landscapes, he also painted still life, nudes, and portraits (of Oleksander Dovzhenko and Volodymyr Vynnychenko, as well as portraits commissioned by the Soviet government of the French writers Henri Barbusse, Romain Rolland, and Victor Margueritte and the painter Paul Signac).

At the beginning of the 1930s, Gluschenko belonged to the Association of Independent Ukrainian Artists and helped organize its large exhibition of Ukrainian, French, and Italian paintings at the National Museum in Lviv.  In 1936 he moved to the USSR, but was allowed to live in Ukraine only after the war, when his works began to reflect an officially approved socialist realism.

In the 1960s, having come into a close contact with new artistic trends, he revitalized his paintings with expressive colors, and assumed a leading position among Ukrainian colorists.
