Alexey Alexandrovich Pisemsky (1859 – 1913) is one of the brightest representatives of the classical school, specializing in realistic landscapes.

The boy was born in 1859 in the village of Buye, Kostroma province, into the family of a landowner. The future artist was the nephew of the writer and playwright Alexei Feofilaktovich Pisemsky.

He entered the Kostroma School, but did not complete his studies and chose a different path: he went to the Imperial Academy of Arts, where he was first a volunteer student, and then, having already become a student, received several awards for his successes.

A distinctive feature of Pisemsky was his masterly use of the pen and the creation of delicate watercolors, the main theme of which was nature. He took part in exhibitions many times, including international ones, and was engaged in illustration. From 1890 he also taught.

The masterly combination of strokes of different widths, carefully calibrated composition and characteristic color allowed Pisemsky to take a place in the galaxy of landscape painters.

Alexey Alexandrovich is known as the creator of touching paintings - stories about the discreet but enchanting beauty of nature. Field grasses, forest trees, small ponds, paths running into the distance, old houses and abandoned wells are objects characteristic of Pisemsky’s works, emphasizing the charm of subjects that are eternal in their beauty.

Pisemsky's canvases were repeatedly sold at antiques auctions at Sotheby's and Christie's. The painter's works are kept in private and museum collections, including the State Tretyakov Gallery.
