Russian painter


Pavel Kuznetsov was born into the family of an icon painter. He studied at the Saratov Bogolyubov drawing school (1891-1897) and then at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture (1897-1903) under Konstantin Korovin and Valentin Serov, as well as in private academies of Paris (1905). 

Pavel Kuznetsov was a member and an exhibitor of the associations World of Art, Union of Russian Artists, The Four Arts, and the Golden Fleece Salon. 
He organized the Scarlet Rose exhibition in Saratov, which preempted the rise of the Blue Rose art group of Symbolists. He was one of the masterminds and ideologists of the Blue Rose that was developed around the same-name exhibition of 1907. 
Along with V. E. Borisov-Musatov he was one of the most consistent Russian symbolist artists. Sergei Diaghilev included his works into the Russian art exhibition in Paris in 1906. 
In the 1910s Pavel Kuznetsov made a trip to Kyrgyzstan, the impressions of which inspired him for “the steppe suite”. 
In addition to his paintings he also fruitfully worked as a stage designer and a teacher at the Higher Art and Technical Studios and other art institutions. 
The paintings by Pavel Kuznetsov can be found in collections of the State Tretyakov Gallery, the State Russian Museum, and many regional museums.
