Grandchildren Aivazovsky, who became artists, their paintings and fate


Ivan Aivazovsky and Julia Graves, his first wife, had four daughters. None of them chose painting as her paths. Other children Aivazovsky no. And he, of course, I wanted someone to give her name (and he even did something about it for this, staying within the bounds of fidelity to his wife, for the second at the time), wanted to teach her, the mother of painting, to convey to him the secrets of mastery. Had to rely on grandchildren, and the calculation is justified.

painting class to Arkhip Kuindzhi. In 1895, the artist himself took grandson to St. Petersburg. Konstantin Bogaevsky recalled the appointment of Michael grade to Kuindzhi:

- Latry, taking all that was brought, went to the Academy, in the Studio of Arkhip Ivanovich, and so worried, what not in forces was to show the sketches himself.

Kuindzhi, his disciples sat down in the chair before the easel, on which one of the students began to put the sketches latry, one after another; the author himself from fear and anxiety walked away, trying not to look at his work and not taking his eyes off Kuindzhi. Antropov reviewed each study
A study is an exercise painting that helps the painter better understand the object he or she paints. It is simple and clear, like sample letters in a school student’s copybook. Rough and ready, not detailed, with every stroke being to the point, a study is a proven method of touching the world and making a catalogue of it. However, in art history, the status of the study is vague and open to interpretation. Despite its auxiliary role, a study is sometimes viewed as something far more significant than the finished piece. Then, within an impressive frame, it is placed on a museum wall.

, Antropov did a hand sign to hurry, but kept silent.


The silence was unbearably painful for the "subject," and he had already decided that now Kuindzhi will be asked to pick up everything and go home.

And suddenly Kuindzhi, after watching the last sketch

After receiving an academic education, latry was fascinated by the progressive establishment of a "New society" of young artists, immigrants from the Studio of Kuinji.

Modernism is more than an art movement. It is a whole complex of changes and processes that took place in culture, art, literature, architecture in the second half of the 19th — the first half of the 20th century. Among the main historical premises of this revolution in art were city development, industrialization and two world wars — processes and events that affected the whole world.

Dyagilevskaya. Grandiose plans failed to be carried out, although work latry was a success. With the support of the Kuindzhi society has held for three years.

Like Ivan Aivazovsky, Mikhail latri spent a winter in Petersburg, and a little warmer – rushed to the Crimea. In the early 1900s, his mother gave him a small plot of land near Feodosia, in saving a Sheep-Ali, where he settled. In the capital latri left only after we establish for the peasant children of the tree. How here again not to remember Ivan Aivazovsky, which joked that he baptized the half of Feodosia kids? His children latry was not, though children he loved very much.

In Baran-Eli Michael latri built two workshops – for painting and ceramics. And ceramics are among his interests prevailed, he is seriously interested in this art form and was in fact the only artist in pre-revolutionary Crimea, who are seriously involved in artistic ceramics. In 1900-ies Mikhail latri acted as a public Director of the Feodosia picture gallery. However, the painting he did not leave. In early 1917, on his own initiative gave his estate to the peasants refused their request to stay with them in charge and went into town, to devote himself entirely to art. For all classes, which wanted to cover, it was not enough, he often did not manage to follow to its logical end. For example, he left many unfinished paintings.

painting and ceramics, and four years later settled in Paris. The only lifetime personal exhibition abroad was held in 1935 in Reims.

Mikhail latri, everyone wrote from nature – and this is its fundamental difference from Aivazovsky that from life wrote. The talent of Mikhail latri was realistic, but with an obvious tendency to poetizatsii nature. The artist used a wide brush, thick brush strokes, thickly smeared with paint. Virtuoso ease Aivazovsky to latri inherited is not passed, all the paintings were given to him from hard work, although he, too, preferred to finish the job in one session.

Brother Mikhail Latri, Alexander Pelopidovich Latry (December 19, 1883, Odessa – 1958) was not an artist, but we can't get around it in this material. If Ivan Aivazovsky realized his dream of an heir names, and not only the heir of the artist. At the age of three the little Sasha moved in with grandfather in Feodosia. Aivazovsky managed to persuade the parents of the grandson, he was allowed to adopt the boy and give him his name. The artist sent a petition to the Emperor: "you do Not have sons, but God gave me daughters and grandchildren. Wanting to save his family, bearing the name of Aivazovsky, I adopted his grandson, the son of the eldest daughter of Alexander latry, male child of Dr. latry, which I have already made the announcement.

Briefly back in St. Petersburg, Alex Hansen soon went to Europe again – this time he was attracted to Italy, and then followed by Paris, the Mecca of all artists. Teachers in Paris were Tony Robert-Fleuryand Jules Lefevre. Like his famous grandfather, Alexei Ganzen the capital of world art received favorably. His paintings are eagerly bought, he had success at exhibitions and open days. From Ivan Aivazovsky Hansen inherited the speed of execution and lightness of the brush, his Muse was as light and creative process for Hansen as for Aivazovsky, was joyful, not painful.

Art critic Yakovlev wrote about Hansine: "Its water is clear and Sublette, ships and boats sitting in it and sway, and not like the lifeless pieces of wood inserted in jelly or in the wool...". Had reason!

Grandfather Alex Hansen took over and the desire to help the poor. Aivazovsky was the godfather of half Theodosia children. Alex Hansen, in turn, had been an honorary member of three wards of orphanages and throughout his life he helped the poor and elderly artists.

Returning to Russia in 1909, Hansen, like Aivazovsky, was appointed artist of the Naval Ministry of Russia. The result of this activity was published in 1916 album "Imperial Russian Navy". It included 25 coloured facsimile reproductions of watercolors by the artist.
 
In Soviet reality, the artist of the Naval Ministry, there was no place. In 1920, Hansen and his wife Olympics Vasilyeva emigrated to Yugoslavia. Looking ahead, we note that the children they had. The family settled in Dubrovnik. Hansen continued to write a lot and regularly exhibited. The geography of his solo exhibitions is wide: Zagreb, Belgrade, Bucharest, Prague, Paris, Rome, South America. The ship theme was not forgotten. Together with emigrated rear Admiral Alexander attended Alex Hansen has released a "History of naval art". Rather, released her drums, and all the illustrations were made by HanseDom. The edition was published in three volumes in the Croatian language. Last lifetime exhibition of the artist in Belgrade, too, was devoted to the ships that tracked the history of the Yugoslav Navy, from the first sailing ships, and ending with the latest at the time the cruiser "Dubrovnik".

Konstantin Konstantinovich Artseulov (17 (29) may 1891, Yalta — March 18, 1980, Moscow)



First painting lessons Konstantin Artseulov received from his grandfather, in whose house he spent his childhood. The younger grandson, he was Aivazovsky favorite. According to the recollections of a cousin of Mikhail latri, Aivazovsky could play a joke on the buyer, handed him the work of Bones, which he signed, and sometimes made even a couple of edits. To please the father and grandfather, Constantine after real school became a cadet Sea cadet corps, and in parallel he attended the drawing class of Lieutenant (and fairly well-known graphics) Pavel Pavlinov. At the end of the case he's going to learn in flight school.

In Moscow the teacher of Konstantin Artseulov was Huon in St. Petersburg – Bakst, Lancerand Dobuzhinsky.

Terrible Soviet 30 years have not passed by Artseulov. In 1933, denounced he was condemned and exiled to Arkhangelsk. This story is the typical, but continued happy and even surprised: in 1937, Artseulov was rehabilitated, after which it remained in Moscow. In the link Artseulov joined the Northern branch of the Union of artists of the RSFSR.

Konstantin Artseulov was a pilot, the aircraft manufacturers, artist, Illustrator. Not going to generalize about "gifted", but it is in these areas of talent he was poured out generously.
