Mikhail Alexandrovich Vrubel
 



Mikhail Vrubel

(1856-1910)

 
(b Omsk, 5 March 1856; d St Petersburg, 1 April 1910).

Russian painter and draughtsman. He was a pioneer of modernism, and his highly innovative technique broke with the traditions of the Academy of Arts in St Petersburg, where he had been a brilliant student; at the same time he felt dissociated from the social consciousness of The Wanderers. He remained a lonely figure in Russian art, but he was the only one of his generation who successfully achieved the monumentality for which so many painters were aiming.
