When he was 15, Russian-born Abram Arkhipov began his studies at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture, & Architecture (1877–83 & 1886–88) as well as at the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts (1884–86). Arkhipov’s works of the 1880s are genre scenes drawn mainly from peasant life.  From 1910, he concentrated on portraits of peasant women. Using broad, thick strokes, & festive, bright colors, Arkhipov created images full of health & joy.  In Moscow he taught at the School of Painting, Sculpture, & Architecture (1894–1918), the State Free Artistic Workshops (1918–20), and the Higher Technical Art Workshop (1922–24).
