Sergei Sudeikin ( Smolensk 1882 - Nyack, New York 1946 )
Sergei Sudeikin was a Russian stage designer and painter. He attended the School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in Moscow from 1897 to 1909, studying mainly under Konstantin Korovin and Valentin Serov, and although he painted a few Impressionist landscapes, his first major artistic concern was with Symbolism, as in his paintings of the first decade of the 20th century such as Pastorale (1905) and Love (1907). After taking part in the exhibition Crimson Rose in Saratov in 1904, he became a founder-member of the 'Blue Rose' group of Symbolist painters, who paid homage to the painting of Viktor Borisov-Musatov, and he developed their mystical motifs and contributed to their exhibition in 1907.
