Marchenko, Tatyana Mikhailovan

Tatyana Marchenko was a pupil of the renowned Russian painter, N.P. Krymov, who created a theory of colorist relations depending on the power of light.  It gives the artist an almost scientific precision in the search of tone.  After graduating from the Moscow Art College named in the Memory of the Year 1905 Marchenko she got a direction from the Ministry of Culture to work in Ufa ( Bashkiria).  She began exhibiting her works in 1939.  After the War, Tatyana came back and stayed in Moscow.  She actively exhibited and won recognition as an excellent portrait artist.  A strong drawing education and a well trained eye allowed her to achieve exact likenesses of her subjects.  She also worked as a still-life and landscape painter.
