‘Spring’ – Konstantin Pankov

PankovSpring

Born into a family of hunters in the far northern region of Russia in 1910, Konstantin Pankov became the first Nenets artist. He started to paint his landscapes in the 1920s, although he had never seen a single painting because of his family’s remote location and lifestyle.

He joined the Red Army as a sniper and scout at the outbreak of World War II and was killed in action in 1942.
