    The youngest member of the Russian avant-garde group, the Jack of Diamonds, Osmerkin was influenced by both the works of Cézanne and those of Matisse. Combining elements of Impressionism and Fauvism, Osmerkin crafted his own unique artistic presence that would eventually traverse many different styles throughout the course of his life. After the revolution, he taught at the Russian State Art and Technical School in Moscow, the Surikov Institute of Moscow, and the Leningrad Academy of Arts. During the socially-repressive Stalin era, Osmerkin was officially banned from teaching and publicly exhibiting art. Today, Osmerkin's works are publicly celebrated in the Tretyakov Gallery, Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow, and State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg.
