Edward Alfred Cucuel ( 6. August 1875, San Francisco - 18. April 1954, Pasadena)

Born in San Francisco, Edward Cucuel was an Impressionist painter of genre and figures in landscapes, often using his family members for models rather than professionals. A specialty was using a vibrant palette and rich impasto to depict women in sun-dappled landscape settings.

At the age of fourteen, he enrolled at the School of Design in San Francisco, and three years later, in 1892, he went to Paris and studied at the Academie Julian. In 1893, he enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts as a student of Jean-Leon Gerome.

In 1896, he returned to the United States and worked as an illustrator on the San Francisco Call and Examiner newspapers and earned enough money to return to Germany and Paris, which he did over the next few years.

In 1907, having lived much time in Germany, he moved his studio from Berlin to Munich and was much influenced there by the German Expressionists. He began working with Leo Putz and developed his own Impressionist style.

He married Clara Lotte von Marcard in 1913, and they spent their summers in a villa on Lake Ammersee in Holzhausen near Munich.

In 1928, he moved to New York, but traveled extensively, and in 1939, he settled permanently in California.

He died in Pasadena in 1954.

Alexander Averin

Born in 1952 in Noginsk, near Moscow, he learned his technique from the painter Dmitri Yorontnov at the School of Fine Arts "Souvenir de I'An 1905" in Moscow. He is a member of the Moscow Painters Association, with whom he has exhibited on many occasions. For many years he specialised in portraits.

His style is purely realistic, with a strong influence of the late 19th Century Russian painters, usually depicting domestic scenes in a soft twilight. His realistic painting is typical for the ones of the end of the 19th Century. Like Pavel Fedotov, Averin's favourite painter, he works outside in the air, using surroundings to inspire the brush and compliment the work.
