Artists in the Spotlight: Konstantin Egorovich Makovsky
Portrait von Konstantin Egorovich Makovsky The artist Konstantin Egorovich Makovsky was born in Moscow as the eldest son of the Russian painter Egor Ivanovich Makowski. He was a highly esteemed and rich Russian painter, one of the pioneers of Impressionism in Russia. In his historical paintings Makovsky idealizes the Russian life of earlier centuries. In addition, he is often regarded as a representative of the so-called salon art. The Makovsky family had a great influence on the art scene in Russia. The father Egor Ivanovich was the founder and director of the art school, which later became the famous Moscow school of painting, sculpture and architecture. Also Konstantin Egorovich Makovsky became a respect person for family, friends and patrons. Among the numerous acquaintances of the family were also Karl Brüllow and Vasily Tropinin. The siblings Konstantin Egorovich Makovsky and his equally famous brother Vladimir became well known painters. They appreciated the support of the enterprising father to make them the popular and successful artists they were. In 1851, the young Makovsky entered the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture of his father. There he was considered one of the best students who could easily win all the awards for themselves. After an intensive apprenticeship in Moscow Makovsky became a student at the Imperial Academy of Arts in Saint Petersburg. From 1860 he participated in numerous group exhibitions of the renowned academy. A noteworthy oil painting exhibited there is, among others, "The Healing of the Blind." Due to Makovsky's vehement refusal to participate with the other thirteen students in the competition for the Academy's Grand Gold Medal because he did not accept the established theme of Scandinavian mythology, the stubborn artist left the academy prematurely and without an official diploma. Makovsky did not quarrel long and became a member of an artist cooperative run by the artist Ivan Kramskoi, which produced paintings about the everyday life of his compatriots. Makovsky's "Widow" from 1865 and two years later the oil painting titled "Heringsverkäufer" were created. Another milestone in his career was the founding of the "Gesellschaft für Reisekunst". Together with fellow artists he organized trips and numerous exhibitions, which found great appeal in the art scene. Incidentally, the prolific painter continued to work on paintings devoted to everyday Russian everyday life. After extensive travels in Egypt and Serbia in the mid-1870s, Makovsky dramatically changed his style of painting. While he portrayed social and psychological problems of Russian society in his early works, he found in his late work an interest in painterly problems of colors and shapes. At the 1889 Paris World's Fair Makovsky was honored with the Grand Gold Medal for his painting Death Iwan the Terrible. In 1915 Makovsky's horse-drawn car was hit by an electric tram. The artist died in St. Petersburg as a result of traffic accident.
