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

Konstantin Maksimov, a prominent socialist realist painter, occupied a unique position in history both as an artist and an influential teacher, who helped to establish and promote Chinese oil painting.  Apart from being known in Russia as a master of psychological portraits, Maksimov's oil painting training class had a profound effect on both the art and the careers of his twenty students during the years he spent in China, teaching by request of the Chinese Government.  Notes taken during his lectures were serialized to give a more personal view of his instructions.

Today, his works are still widely collected by both Russian and Chinese art connoisseurs.  Besides his prolonged stay in China from 1954, he traveled extensively across Europe, collecting impressions of his stays and entrusting them to canvas.  His works contribute to all major Russian museums' collections, including the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow and the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as several Chinese state museums.
