In 1904 Kuznetsov graduated from MUZhVZ. He was one of the organizers of the exhibition Scarlet Rose in Saratov in 1904. In 1905 he together with Borisov-Musatov, M. A. Vrubel, and V. V. Kandinsky took part in the 12th exhibition of Moscow Association of Artists, in 1906 — exhibition of the group Mir Iskusstva (“World of Art”) in St. Petersburg. Kuznetsov made a trip to Paris, studied at free workshops and art schools of Montparnasse. He participated in the exhibition of the Russian artists in Paris organized by S. P. Dyagilev. From 1907 till 1917 Kuznetsov was a member of the society Free Aesthetics. In 1907 he exposed his works at the exhibition of symbolism artists Golubaya Roza (“Blue Rose”) in Moscow, later he became one of the leaders of this society.

In 1905–1909 Kuznetsov worked a lot in the field of book and magazine graphic art. He collaborated with the magazines Iskusstvo (“Art”), Zolotoye Runo (“Golden Fleece”).
