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

Vitaly Mushketov was a teacher of the arts and dedicated employee of the Smolensk Museum, who collaborated with the German occupying forces for the sake of cataloguing the exhibits that were being looted (see Vladimir Kovalev,

He accompanied part of the museum collection that was evacuated upon the taking of Vilnius by the Soviet Army, but unfortunately during the evacuation of Vilnius, he was removed from the further packaging and transportation of exhibits and managed to find only the approximate route taken.

His copious cataloging notes came into Soviet hands after the war, and helped to discern the fate of many of the looted exhibits. However, while several artists' dictionaries and sources list Mushketov's date of death as 1945, it would be interesting to know if that can be corroborated by records, or if, as Kovalev notes, Mushketov's whereabouts were unknown after the German evacuation from Vilnius.
