Sergey Vinogradov

Sergey Vinogradov (1869, Kostroma Governorate, Russian Empire – 1938, Riga, Republic of Latvia) – a famous artist. From 1924 till his death in 1938 had been living and working in Riga.

Was a full member of  St. Petersburg Academy of Arts, moved to Riga in 1924. Rented an artist’s studio from Bogdanov-Belsky. The main themes of his works were the suburbs of Riga suburbs, however, he was particularly attracted to Latgalia (the eastern part of Latvia), where the local nature reminded him of Russia.

Sergey Vinogradov: To see, to see – that is our duty.

I know my art. My studies, perception, memories and hard work were not in vain. Now, there are no technical difficulties for me.

Pyotr Pilsky: Vinogradov is an amazing artist; whatever he comes into contact with, suddenly starts to quiver and sparkle.
