Alexey Savrasov Biography

Alexey Kondratyevich Savrasov is one of the Russia’s most remarkable landscape painters, the originator of the so-called ‘mood landscape’. Savrasov was born into the family of a merchant. He began to draw early; in 1838 he enrolled as a student at the Moscow School of Painting and Sculpture (graduated in 1850), and immediately began to specialize in landscape painting. His efforts of the 1850s reveal the difficult process he was going through trying to overcome the academic tradition in depicting landscape.
