Ilya Mashkov



Ilya Mashkov


(b Mikhaylovskaya-on-Don, 29 July 1881; d Moscow, 20 March 1944).

Russian painter. He studied at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture (1900–10) under Valentin Serov and Konstantin Korovin. In 1909–10 he exhibited with the Third Golden Fleece and in 1910 was a founder-member of the avant-garde exhibiting society the Jack of Diamonds, of which he remained a leader until 1915. In these early years his still-lifes, landscapes and portraits were particularly influenced by Fauvism. Characteristic is the magnificent portrait of Mme Kirkal’da (1910; Moscow, Tret’yakov Gal.), which demonstrates a witty sense of humour and a love of bold colouring and crude figure drawing. A series of still-lifes, including Loaves of Bread (1912; St Petersburg, Rus. Mus.), was inspired by Russian folk art. In 1914 Mashkov moved away from these influences; paintings such as Still-life with Horse’s Skull (St Petersburg, Rus. Mus.) reveal lighter brushwork, a restrained palette and new sensitivity to the different material qualities of objects.
