|Artist||Kuzma Sergeevich Petrov-Vodkin, (November 5, 1878 – February 15, 1939) was an Russian and Soviet painter and writer.
Until the mid-1960s, Petrov-Vodkin was nearly forgotten in the Soviet Union after his curtailment of painting and turn towards writing.
Petrov-Vodkin writings were republished in the 1970s to a great acclaim, after a long period of neglect. His most famous literary works are the 3 self-illustrated autobiographical novellas: “Khlynovsk”, “Euclidean Space” and “Samarcandia”. The second of these is of particular importance, as it transmits Petrov-Vodkin worldview as an artist in great detail.
