Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin Biography

Born in Khvalynsk, provincial town near Saratov in Russia, into the family of a shoemaker, Petrov-Vodkin felt the desire for drawing very early, though there was not much opportunity to develop his talent. First the boy found himself an icon painter, who agreed to teach him his art. Only at the age of 15 he started to get the lessons in painting in classes of drawing and painting of F.E. Burov.
