Boris Fyodorovich Rybchenkov
Born in Smolensk in 1899. Died in Moscow in 1994. Rybchenkov studied at the Kiev Art School in 1920–1921, at the St. Petersburg Academy of Art, and at the Higher State Art and Craft Shops in 1921–1925. His teachers there included the great masters of the Russian avant-garde Lyubov Popova, Alexander Drevin, Nadezhda Udaltsova and Alexander Shevchenko. Rybchenkov was one of the main participants of the exhibitions of “The Thirteen” group, which determined the face and style of this group. The rhythmical flowing space of his paintings, the free movement of the mass of color and the laconic brevity of his means of graphic expression can, in many ways, be attributed not only to the influence of Drevin’s painting, but also to the art of Vlaminka and Marquet. Rybchenkov’s ironic treatment of the subject portrayed makes his style recognizable. Urban landscape is one of the favorite genres of the artist.
