Mikhail Aleksandrovich Vrubel was born in Siberia, Russia, to a colonel in the Russian armed force. Vrubel considered painting at the Society for the Encouragement of the Arts in St. Petersburg. Here, he gained from Chistiakov, who might assume a critical part in developing Vrubel’s style, similar to other extraordinary specialists like Ilya Repin, Vasilii Polenov, Victor Vasnetsov, Valentin Serov, and Vasilii. He was a functioning individual from the Abramtsevo artistry circle and chipped away at improving boards, paintings of Venice and Spain.
During his work on a picture of Valerii Briusov, Vrubel saw that he was losing sight. The acknowledgment that he would not have the option to paint irritated his state of mind. In the spring of 1910, in an attack of wretchedness and misery, Vrubel remained before an open window, hoping to contract a bug; he passed on when the virus-transformed into pneumonia.
