YAKOVLEV Alexander Evgenievich

June 13, 1887 (St. Petersburg) — May 12, 1938 (Paris)

Painter, graphic artist, scene-designer

Alexander Yakovlev was born to a family of naval officer. He finished the K. I. Mai gymnasium in St. Petersburg. In 1905 Yakovlev entered the Academy of Fine Arts, studied under the guidance of D. N. Kardovsky. He became good friends with V. I. Shukhaev and V. A. Lokkenberg; summer months they painted in the village Barmino on Volga River.

Since 1909 Yakovlev collaborated with the magazines Apollon (“Apollo”), Satirikon, Noviy Satirikon (“New Satirikon”), Niva (“Field”). In 1909–1910 he exposed his works at the Salon of V. A. Izdebsky, at the exhibitions of the Union of Russian Artists. Since 1912 Yakovlev participated in the exhibitions of the group Mir Iskusstva (“World of Art”); in 1915 he became a member of this group. In 1912 he exposed his big group portrait At the academic dacha at the Baltic exhibition in Malmo; his work evoked warm responses, including the enthusiastic article of A. N. Benois.

In 1913 Yakovlev was conferred the title of an artist and pensioner trip abroad for the paintings In bathhouse and Bathing. In 1914–1915 he together with V. I. Shukhaev traveled through Italy, studied the painting of Old Masters, visited Spain. At the end of 1915 he returned to Petrograd, exposed his paintings Fisherman, Violinist and some portraits at the exhibition of the group Mir Iskusstva. Yakovlev’s works were subjected to criticism in art circles. His workmanship was highly appreciated, but at the same time he was accused of mannerism and eclecticism.

At the end of 1916 Yakovlev represented his works of 1913–1916 to the Soviet of the Imperial Academy of Arts (IAKh), which admitted only his graphic works and extended his pensioner trip for two years. However his trip was delayed because of the World War I. In 1916 Yakovlev taught drawing at the architecture courses of Bagaeva in Petrograd and at the New art studio in the Vasilievsky Island.

In 1916–1917 Yakovlev was engaged in easel graphic art and monumental painting. He participated in the design of the interiors of the art café Comedians’ Halt (“Prival Komediantov”) in Petrograd. He together with V. I. Shukhaev created plafond Nine muses in the estate of Firsanov in Moscow; he drew sketches to the murals of the orthodox Saint Nikolay church in Bari and to Kazan railway station in Moscow.
