Martiros Saryan was born in the town of New Nakhichevan near Rostov-на-Дону, where the bulk of the population were Armenians who moved to the Azov steppes from the Crimea in the late eighteenth century. In 15 years, Saryan graduated from the public city school. Seriously fascinated by the painting, he in the autumn of 1897 he entered the Moscow School of painting, sculpture and architecture.

while studying Sarian had at the most interesting period in the history of the School. Among the teachers were A. Arkhipov, A. M. Vasnetsov, N.. Kasatkin, K. A. Korovin, I. I. Levitan, Leonid Pasternak, Valentin Serov. Students spent whole days in the Rumyantsev Museum and the Tretyakov gallery. A significant influence on the formation of their Outlook had acquaintance with the latest French painting in the famous collections of S. I. Shchukin and I. A. Morozov.

In 1903, Sarian was awarded two small silver medals and got the titleclass (free) artist, however, continued to improve in the workshop of V. A. Serov and K. A. Korovin, learning the lessons of impressionism.

In College, Sarian became close with classmates PV Kuznetsov, PS Utkin and other young symbolists. In 1900-е years with them actively participated in the exhibition "scarlet rose" (1904), "Blue rose" (1907), the "crown" (1908), Golden fleece (1908-1910).

Sarian always gravitated to his roots. At the age of twenty he first went to Armenia. Typical landscapes and the flavor of life of the people of this country gave a strong impetus to his creative quest.

In 1910-1913 Saryan made a number of trips to Turkey, Egypt and Iran. In Constantinople, the artist was impressed by the old Asian neighborhoods. Back in Moscow, he created a series of small pictures, representing the streets of East city, where peacefully coexist with the people and animals. In them there is no development of narrative plot — is not genre paintings in their usual sense. Their importance is primarily in the novelty, brightness of perception of the real world. The undisputed highlight among these paintings — "Street. Noon. Constantinople" whose image is built on the contrast of several intense colors: bright blue sky, dark-синяя shadow on the facades of houses and sidewalks gives a special sonority yellow-оранжевой strip of narrow streets, illuminated by the southern sun, and the same glare on the protruding eaves of roofs.

Silberstein received work "Gazelle" (1926), exhibited at the first personal exhibition of foreign masters in Paris in 1928. This is a landmark for creativity Saryan's work, by his own admission, synthesized tasks, which he set himself: to represent "nature as a single living entity."

Prosperous life Sarian was interrupted in 1915 when he found out thatthe tragedy of the Armenian people, he went from Moscow to Echmiadzin to help refugees. There, the artist became ill. Friends took him to Tiflis, where he participated in the organization of the Society of Armenian artists and the "Union of Armenian artists", issued published by V. Y. Brusov "Anthology of Armenian poetry", but permanently moved away from the painting.
