Soviet artist Viktor Nikolaevich Chulovich
An outstanding master, from the legendary “sixties”, Viktor Nikolaevich Chulovich (July 5, 1922 – 1994) possessed a mighty, courageous and temperamental brush. It’s not even the power of talent, not the integrity and completeness of creativity, but the ability to convey the charm of the past era.
Viktor Nikolaevich Chulovich studied at the Moscow Art School of Memory of 1905 (workshop of P. Petrovichev). However, like most of his contemporaries, he had to defend his Motherland during the WWII. So, in 1941 he fought as a machine gunner on the Kalinin and Stalingrad fronts. Demobilized because of a serious wound (August 1942), Chulovich continued his education. In particular, at the painting department of the All-Union State Institute of Cinematography in Moscow. His teachers were F.S. Bogorodsky and KM. Morozov. After graduation (1951) he worked as an artist at the Moscow Film Studio.
