Pavel Dmitrievich Korin

A Korin - one of the largest, most complex and tragic figures in Russian art of the XX century.

He was born in the famous village of Palekh in a family of painters. The life path was predetermined. However, the development of talent required. Corinne moved to Moscow in 1911, became an assistant MVNesterov to work on the painting of the church Martha and Mary Convent.

Meeting with Nesterov, who understood art as a spiritual endeavor, as well as another "meeting" - with the work of A. Ivanova , worship of his ascetic life in reinforced Corina dream to give life to art, to reach the heights of skill, to become the successor of the great traditions of Russian painting.

In 1916, Corinne ends MUZHVZ, but unsatisfied with their first independent works, aware of how far the cherished ideal of how difficult the path to the target.
in 1918-25 years., in the midst of the turmoil in the country and in the arts, is like Corinne voluntary obedience: a lot of draws, copies, studying anatomy. He is convinced that new and emerging artistic trends do not expand, and sharply narrow the possibilities of the artist, do not let him into the hands of sufficient plastic means that the movement is not up, but down.

In 1925, Corinne, as once A. Ivanov , finds his subject. In April of this year is dying patriarch Tikhon. In Moscow, the funeral is going to the entire Orthodox Russia. Shocked by what he saw student Nesterov, an Orthodox Russian people, Pavel Korin aware of myself as an artist of Russia, it would seem doomed, but continues to live on, confident in their spiritual correctness. It was intended to portray a procession during the funeral of the patriarch.

Soon after work began on the preparatory sketches for the painting, which is called Corinne "Requiem". At the same time the artist creates the first major work - panoramic landscape "My Country" (1928). This is a view of Palekh distance. Corinne like touches to their native land, gathering strength for the realization of the grand plan. He again like swears allegiance to the great national traditions, their regular teachers - AA Ivanov and MV Nesterov. The work on the sketches to the big picture took ten years.

Last Portrait - Metropolitan Sergius, the patriarch of the future - written in 1937 Filled with rare for the art of XX century. plastic power sketches together constitute a unique series of portraits. Orthodox Russia - from pauper to the highest church hierarchy - appears before the audience. Characters are united by a common condition, full of inner spiritual fire, but each has an individual character.

In 1931, a workshop Corina unexpectedly visited Gorky. From the picture it was given a new name - "Disappearing Russia" that distorted the original intent, but the "cover" of the artist from possible attacks. Due to Gorky, brothers Paul and Corinne Alexander go to Italy. There they study the old masters, Paul D. paints landscapes and the famous portrait of Gorky (1932). At this time the final shape painting style Corina: the powerful plastic molding, chased and generalized form, restrained, and at the same time rich colors with the introduction of individual color accents, painting dense, multi-layered, using glazes (Corinne - a connoisseur of painting techniques).
