 Nikolay Millioti


Born:   January 16, 1874
Deceased:   December 26, 1962

Russian artist, prominent representative of the Russian symbolism.

      

Along with his brother Vassily Millioti (1875 - 1943) Nikolay Millioti was a prominent artist of the Russian symbolism, a member of The Blue Rose.

He was known as a portraitist, author of still lifes and landscapes, decorative panels, the fete galante, and compositions on abstract subjects of symbolist nature.
 
The most characteristic of him are the allegorical images (such as angels, mirage landscapes, etc.) painted as colourful enchanting spectacles close to ornamental abstraction. 
 
Nikolay Dmitriyevich Milioti (Nicolas Millioti) was trained at Voskresensky School in the middle of 1880. In 1894 he entered the Moscow University for Painting, Sculpture and Architecture, where he studied under N. A. Kasatkin, S. V. Ivanov, Valentin Serov and Konstantin Korovin. He actively participated in innovative art undertakings and organization of exhibitions.
 
In 1914 Nikolay Millioti was mobilized and served at World War I as the artillery ensign in Galicia. He was demobilized as well as many other artists in 1917.
 
After the October Revolution of 1917 the artist Nikolay Millioti emigrated from Russia. In 1918-1922 he stayed in Berlin, where he actively participated in art life of the artists’ colony that took shape there. He was a member of the Council of the Arts House. In 1924 he worked together with N. Goncharova at the Yu. L. Sazonova-Slonimskaya Puppet Theater. From 1929 to 1930 he taught in the Russian Academy of T. L. Sukhotina-Tolstaya.
 
Nikolay Millioti gained wide recognition in easel portrait painting.
 
The artist's life in emigration was quite hard and the periods of artistic triumphs were replaced with poverty and wanderings.
 
The artist died at hospital in Paris on December 26, 1962 and was buried in Cimetire russe de Sainte-Genevive-des-Bois. After his death the venerator of his talent L. Panayeva sent his paintings to Moscow.
