Antonin Ivanovich Soungouroff (1894-1982) "Venetian boy", oil on canvas, 1950s
Antonin Ivanovich Soungouroff was born in Russia in 1894. In 1926, he immigrated to China; lived in the village near Kharbin, and traveled throughout the whole country. In 1927-29 he worked as an illustrator of a Russian magazine “Youth” in Kharbin, at the same time producing oil paintings with scenes of the Chinese folk life. In autumn of 1933 his works were shown at the 1st art-ethnographic exhibition from collection of KVZhD in Kharbin. In the mid-1930s, the artist moved to France, where he soon became well known for his portraits of handsome young men, in particular the inhabitants of Paris and environs of Cannes (South France). In fact, Soungouroff was known predominantly as a gay artist, who unabashedly dealt with themes and images relating to gay life and culture. He became friends with many prominent writers and artists, including Jean Cocteau, Christian Berard, and Roger Peyrefitte. He died at the Cote d’Azur (South France) in 1982.
