Serebriakova, Zinaida Evgen’evna


Born Nov. 30 (Dec. 12), 1884, in the village of Neskuchnoe, in what is now Kursk Oblast; died Sept. 19, 1967, in Paris. Russian painter. Daughter of E. A. Lansere.

Serebriakova studied in St. Petersburg at the studio school of Princess M. K. Tenisheva (from 1902) and at the studio of O. E. Braz (1903–05). She was a member of the World of Art group (Mir Iskusstva). In 1924 she settled in Paris. Influenced by the 16th- and 17th-century Italian masters, Serebriakova sought to create ideally beautiful and harmonious images of women. Her handsome and thoughtfully executed works, which include portraits, nudes, and scenes of the Russian countryside, are characterized by balanced composition, precise and sensually modelled forms, and a terse style (In the Bathhouse, 1913, Russian Museum, Leningrad; The Harvest, 1915, Odessa Art Museum; Bleaching Linen, 1917, Tret’iakov Gallery; Collioure: Katia on the Terrace, 1930, Tret’iakov Gallery).

The range is extraordinary: The exhibition opens with Mikhail Nesterovصs giant painting of religious Russians, زThe Heart of the People,س and continues through the idealized peasants of Zinaida Serebryakova and Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin, and the decidedly non-idealised peasants of Boris Grigoriev; the sumptuous aristocratic sitting rooms of Stanislav Zhukovsky; the brilliant scenes of Jewish life by Marc Chagall; and on through cityscapes, portraits, self-portraits and still lifes until we get to the avant-garde works of Kazimir Malevich, Aleksandr Rodchenko and Lyubov Popova.
