Philip Maliavin

 

(b Kazanka, Samara region [now Orenburg region], 10 Oct 1869; d Nice, July, 1940).

Russian painter and draughtsman. He studied icon painting at the St Panteleimon monastery, Agios-Oros, Greece, from 1885 to 1891. He then enrolled at the Academy of Arts in St Petersburg, where he stayed until 1899, taking lessons from Il’ya Repin, one of his principal influences, before embarking on his career as a painter. At the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris he was awarded a gold medal for his picture Laughter (Venice, Ca’ Pesaro), a celebration of peasant women. Malyavin enjoyed a certain success for his many vivid, colourful portrayals of peasant women, further examples being Peasant Woman in Yellow (1903; Nizhniy Novgorod, A. Mus.) and Whirlwind (1906; Moscow, Tret’yakov Gal.). He was also noted for his fine portraits of contemporaries, such as Grabar (1895) and Somov (1895; both St Petersburg, Rus. Mus.).
