1920 -2000

Vladimir Yakovelich Yukin was born in Mstera, Russia in 1920.

He studied at the Ivanovo Art College until 1940 and then at the Lvov Institute of Applied and Decorative Art in Western Ukraine until 1948. He began exhibiting in 1949. He taught at the Mstera Pofessional–Technical School from 1948 to 1954.

Yukin has been the recipient of numerous one man shows throughout the former Soviet Union, and his artwork has been exhibited and collected throughout the world.

He is one of the founding members of the Vladimir School of Landscape Painting (with Kim Britov and Valery Kokurin) named after their home city of Vladimir, Russia. The School is arguably one of the most important movements in Soviet art after 1950. It is characterized by thick palettes, distorted images, two dimensional perspectives and often vibrant palettes. Yukin′s paintings have been featured in most Soviet Era art books and many recent ones. His works are in all major private and public Russian collections--sought after throughout the world.

Yukin passed away in 2000. He is listed on page 356 of Matthew Bown′s, A Dictionary of Twentieth Century Russian and Soviet Painters.
