Russian sculptor


Alexander Terentyevich Matveyev was born into the family of a trade employee in Saratov. In 1899 he entered the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture, where he was tutored by S. M. Volnukhin and P.P. Trubetskoy. He graduated from the school in 1902. His works were displayed at the exhibitions of the World of Art association and the Blue Rose exhibition. The artist lived in Petersburg (from 1907) and Moscow (from 1943).

Alexander Matveyev aimed at classically clear-cut images, accurate architectonics, and generality of the form. He was the master of small forms in sculpture. 
His skills had a considerable impact on the tradition of Russian plastic arts: he taught in the Leningrad Academy of Arts and at the Surikov Moscow Art Institute after moving to Moscow. 
The Russian Museum has the fullest collection of sculptures by Alexander Matveyev, as well as by the sculptors that were his students. It was founded in the 1920s – 1930s and still goes on to be replenished.
