Peter Ivanovich Petrovichev (December 18, 1874 - January 4, 1947), an outstanding Russian and Soviet painter, a bright representative of the national landscape painting school. Born in the village of Vysokovo of the Rostov district of the Yaroslavl province (now the Yaroslavl region) in a peasant family. In his youth, he worked in a restoration workshop at the Rostov Museum of Church Antiquities. From 1892 to 1903 he studied at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture under I.I. Levitan, K.A. Korovin, V.A. Serov.
In 1903, PI Petrovichev graduated from college with a large silver medal and the title of "class artist." While still in college, he began to exhibit as exhibitors at exhibitions of the Association of Traveling Art Exhibitions, and in 1911 he became a member. In 1905, PI. Petrovichev, combining in his work the traditions of the Russian national school of painting and the impressionistic method, was invited to participate in exhibitions of the Union of Russian Artists, and in 1910 became a member of this association.
In the Soviet period, Petrovichev continued to work a lot. In 1927-1928, he took part in the creation of the society “The Unification of Realist Artists”. In 1937 - 1943, he taught at the Moscow Art School of Memory in 1905. PI died Petrovichev in 1947, buried in the Vagankovo cemetery.
P.I. Petrovichev left a bright mark in the history of Russian and Soviet painting, not only as an outstanding landscape painter, but also as a master of still life and interior painting. Currently his works are kept in the State Tretyakov Gallery, the State Russian Museum and many museums in Russia.
In the KMII collection there is one work of P. I. Petrovichev - “Clear August”, created in 1915. The painting belongs to the mature period of the artist’s work, when his painting style was formed, based on a free impressionistic stroke and a clear drawing of the form.
This small lyrical landscape, which depicts a cottage in the forest on a clear sunny day. The landscape is built on the transitions of green tones from cold foreground hues to warmer golden green in depth. This juxtaposition of shades conveys a sunny feeling. The red roof serves as a kind of tuning fork to the range of green tones, enhancing their sound. The work is executed by a thick brushstroke characteristic of the artist, which is a distinctive feature of his pictorial style. Another feature of his works, visible in this small canvas, is the “picture vision” of the world and the immediacy of perception of nature, in which the talent of the landscape painter manifests itself.
