This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The following is from Alexandra Beatty

My stepfather, the late Dr. Carl Uhr, knew Mr. Scherbakoff during the 1950's, when they both lived in San Francisco. I inherited several of Mr. Scherbakoff's paintings when my stepfather passed away in 1999, and I was told by my stepfather that these landscape paintings were of Golden Gate Park. There is another painting of a little Russian babuska doll set amid beads and wooden bowls upon a richly printed cloth, with an ominous dark sky in the distance.

My stepfather lived not far from Golden Gate Park and would walk there daily, where he frequently encountered Mr. Scherbakoff painting. I was told that Mr. Scherbakoff was a Russian emigrant who left to escape Stalin.
From Edan Hughes, "Artists in California 1786-1940"

Born in Russia, Sergey Scherbakoff was a watercolorist who was encouraged in his art talent by his mother, who was an amateur artist. At age 14, he entered the Kharkov Academy of Fine Arts where he studied art and architecture. In 1912, he became a member of the Russian Art Society. Most of his family perished during the Russian Revolution, and he escaped to Tokyo in 1919. There he exhibited at the Imperial Japanese Art Association and sold many of his marine paintings to the imperial family.

In 1922, he settled in San Francisco where he remained until his death. He painted the California landscape and did many watercolors of Yosemite, the Russian River, Carmel, and Marin County. Many of his paintings show the Oriental influence.
