LOT NOTES

Vasiliy Chekrygin was a graphic artist, engraver, painter, teacher. He studied at the school of icon-painting at the Kiev Monastery of the Caves and at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture (1910-1914), where his exceptional talents won him a Levitan scholarship. Chekrygin illustrated some poems of Vladimir Mayakovsky, his very close friend. He taught at the Sokolniki House of Arts (1918) and a printing studio (1921). Influenced by Nikolai Fyodorov Philosophy of the Common Task, particularly his ideas of immortality and revival of the dead, which formed the basis for his Resurrection cycle of drawings.
