- Armenian Painter - Victoria-M.
Martiros Sarian was an Armenian painter. His work set the standard of national art, and laid the foundations for its flowering in the Soviet period. He was born into an Armenian family in Nor Nakhijevan (Russia), on 28 February 1880. In 1895 he completed the Nakhijevan school and from 1897 to 1904 studied at the Moscow School of Arts, including in the workshops of Valentin Serov and Konstantin Korovin. He was heavily influenced by the work of Paul Gauguin and Henri Matisse. He exhibited his works in various shows. Sarian died in Yerevan on 5 May 1972. His former home in Yerevan is now a museum dedicated to his work with hundreds of items on display.
