(Bilibin, Ivan Yakolovich)

A Church and Cemetery.

Bilibin, Ivan Yakolovich (illus.)

(Moscow): 1904. Bright postcard, lithographed in color, showing a cemetery with a wooden structure behind it. Ivan Bilibin first trained as a lawyer, but after traveling through Europe, he became attracted to the art world. He began to draw and became highly successful as a theatrical designer. Besides work for the Diaghilev, he also created for the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées. His postcard work often shows local scenes and characters usually surrounded by attractive borders. Through this medium he was able to capture the everyday working life and spirit of his fellow Russians. Fine. Item #4588
