Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Archival material states that the offered lot was in the present European corporate collection by 1934

    Pavel Dzhogin was a Russian landscape painter who mainly depicted views of the St. Petersburg area as well as Estonia, Novgorod and Chernigov provinces. His works are in the collections of major Russian museums: The State Tretyakov Gallery, The State Hermitage Museum, the Museums of Irkutsk, Kursk, Tyumen, Almaty, Tashkent, among others. Born in 1834 in Starodubsky County of Chernigov province, after finishing school in Chernogov, Dzhogin joined the Academy of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, where he studied along with Alexander Gine and Ivan Shishkin. He graduated from the Academy with the rank of a class artist in 1863. By this time, he already participated in academy exhibitions and his album with views of Valaam won him popularity. The album included the following scenes: View of the oaks near St. Petersburg, View near Narva in Estonia, 1872, View of Chernigor region, 1876, The Vaalam. Dzhogin's teacher from the academy, A. Mokritsky, remarked upon his student: 'Everyone is born with an understanding of the soul of nature[...] This understanding can be seen in the works by Gine and Dzhogin. Hold on firmly to your beliefs[...] until lovers of art and critics admit that good art is born from hard work and not from random brush strokes; they knew it before but some have forgotten it[...] However when two or three serious artists present their powerful works, there will be no space for dandies'(Ivan Shishkin. Correspondence. Diary. The Contemporaries of the Artist, Leningrad, 1984).

    The present lot is an example of Dzhogin's landscapes which gained fame in Russia and the Baltic states. Many of them depicted the countryside around St. Petersburg and were often painted en plein, directly from nature. Due to the artist's need to appeal to popular taste, his work was largely confined by the dictates of academic landscape painting. The offered lot is one such traditionally painted landscape. The nod to human cultivation in the form of the faint human figure wading by the far bank of the river is typical of Dzhogin's works.
