Off to Russia - Pyotr Alexandrovich Nilus 1869-1943

.
1891 Pyotr Alexandrovich Nilus (Russian artist, 1869-1943) Paying a Visit

Pyotr Alexandrovich Nilus 1869-1943 was a Russian Impressionist painter. As a garden historian, the first Nilus paintings that I knew were his Paris promenades & parks series, but I have come to appreciate his early Russia genre paintings more. The garden scenes do not even seem to be from the same talented hand.  Pyotr was born into a family of Swiss heritage at their estate in Podolsk village. At the age of 7, he moved to Odessa to study at the local Peter & Paul real school & to attend art classes of Kyriak Kostandithen. He later attended the Imperial Academy of Arts in Saint Petersburg & participated in exhibitions of Peredvizhniki. In 1920, he immigrated to Paris, where he worked, until his death in 1943.
