    PROVENANCE:
    The family of the artist; Christie's, July 2000

    Konstantin Yuon was an accomplished artist in many media. Much of this was due to his association with and tutelage by the renowned artists Konstantin Korovin and Valentin Serov. Their influence is best seen in this pencil and watercolor on board titled Summer Dawn. Korovin preceded Yuon in the Wanderers (Peredviszhniki) group, the first in the waves of associations of Russian artists that sought to revolutionize Russian art. Yuon would join him in the successor organization, World of Art, (or Mir Isskutssva) where they were free from the restraints of the Imperial Academy to pursue Impressionist works. He was such a remarkable artist that his success spanned from the Imperial era into the Soviet Russian regimes.

    Perhaps highly reflected in his work here was his lifetime membership in Salon d'Automne in Paris. This pencil and watercolor shows the influence of the Salon's founders and early members, such as Henri Matisse and Pierre August-Renoir. Yuon was first and foremost a Russian artist, however, choosing to open his own art studio where he taught for 17 years, influencing the careers of many Russian artists and having in an immense impact on the direction of Russian art in the 20th century.

    In Summer Dawn, Yuon lets his Impressionist style shine through in a masterful use of pencil and watercolor in this harbor scene. He personally valued this very picture enough to include it in the background of the portrait of his son he completed in 1911, a masterpiece which is exhibited in the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow today.

    ПРОИХОЖДЕНИЕ КАРТИНЫ:
    СЕМЬЯ ХУДОЖНИКА;
    АУКЦИОН КРИСТИ, ИЮЛЬ 2000 Г.

    КОНСТАНТИН ЮОН БЫЛ УСПЕШНЫМ ХУДОЖНИКОМ, РАБОТАВШИМ ВО МНОГИХ ТВОРЧЕСКИХ ОБЛАСТЯХ. СВОИМИ УСПЕХАМИ ОН БЫЛ ВО МНОГОМ ОБЯЗАН ОБУЧЕНИЮ И ПОДДЕРЖКЕ СО СТОРОНЫ ИЗВЕСТНЫХ ХУДОЖНИКОВ - КОНСТАНТИНА КОРОВИНА И ВАЛЕНТИНА СЕРОВА. ИХ ВЛИЯНИЕ ОТЛИЧНО ПРОСМАТРИВАЕТСЯ ИМЕННО В ЭТОМ РИСУНКЕ КАРАНДАШОМ И АКВАРЕЛЬЮ НА ДОСКЕ ПОД НАЗВАНИЕМ «ЛЕТНИЙ РАССВЕТ». КОРОВИН БЫЛ ПРЕДШЕСТВЕННИКОМ ЮОНА, УЧАСТВУЯ В ДВИЖЕНИИ ПЕРЕДВИЖНИКОВ - АССОЦИАЦИИ РУССКИХ ХУДОЖНИКОВ ПЕРВОЙ ВОЛНЫ, СТРЕМИВШИХСЯ РЕВОЛЮЦИОНИЗИРОВАТЬ РУССКОЕ ИСКУССТВО. ЮОН СЛЕДУЕТ ЗА НИМ, ПРИСОЕДИНИВШИСЬ К ОРГАНИЗАЦИИ "МИР ИСКУССТВА", КОТОРАЯ ПРОДОЛЖАЛА ДЕЛО ПЕРЕДВИЖНИКОВ. ОНА ОСВОБОЖДАЛА ХУДОЖНИКОВ ОТ ОГРАНИЧЕНИЙ, НАКЛАДЫВАЕМЫХ ИМПЕРАТОРСКОЙ АКАДЕМИЕЙ, И ОНИ МОГЛИ ТАМ СВОБОДНО РАБОТАТЬ В СТИЛЕ ИМПРЕССИОНИСТОВ. КОНСТАНТИН ЮОН - ЭТО ЗАМЕЧАТЕЛЬНЫЙ ХУДОЖНИК, КОТОРОМУ УДАЛОСЬ ПЕРЕНЕСТИ СВОЙ УСПЕХ ИЗ ИМПЕРАТОРСКОЙ ЭПОХИ В ЭПОХУ СОВЕТСКОЙ РОССИИ.

    ВОЗМОЖНО, ПРИНАДЛЕЖНОСТЬ ЮОНА К «САЛОНУ d'Automne» В ПАРИЖЕ, КОТОРАЯ ДЛИЛАСЬ ВСЮ ЖИЗНЬ, ТАКЖЕ НАШЛА ОТРАЖЕНИЕ В ЭТОЙ ЕГО РАБОТЕ. ЗДЕСЬ ПРОСЛЕЖИВАЕТСЯ ВЛИЯНИЕ УЧРЕДИТЕЛЯ САЛОНА АНРИ МАТИССА, А ТАКЖЕ НЕКОТОРЫХ ЕГО УЧАСТНИКОВ, ТАКИХ КАК ПЬЕР ОГЮСТ РЕНУАР. НО ЮОН, В ПЕРВУЮ ОЧЕРЕДЬ, БЫЛ ИСТИННО РУССКИМ ХУДОЖНИКОМ, РЕШИВ ОТКРЫТЬ СВОЮ СОБСТВЕННУЮ ХУДОЖЕСТВЕННУЮ ШКОЛУ, ГДЕ ОН ПРЕПОДАВАЛ В ТЕЧЕНИЕ 17 ЛЕТ, ОКАЗЫВАЯ ВЛИЯНИЕ НА КАРЬЕРУ МНОГИХ РОССИЙСКИХ ХУДОЖНИКОВ, И ЧЕРЕЗ ЭТО ВЛИЯЯ НА ФОРМИРОВАНИЕ НАПРАВЛЕНИЯ РУССКОГО ИСКУССТВА 20 ВЕКА В ЦЕЛОМ.

    МАСТЕРСКОЕ ИСПОЛЬЗОВАНИЯ КАРАНДАША И АКВАРЕЛИ ЮОНОМ В «ЛЕТНЕМ РАССВЕТЕ» ВЫСВЕЧИВАЕТ ЕГО ИМПРЕССИОНИСТСКИЙ СТИЛЬ, КОТОРЫЙ ОН ВЫБРАЛ ДЛЯ ЗАПЕЧАТЛЕНИЯ ЭТОЙ СЦЕНЫ В ГАВАНИ. ХУДОЖНИК НАСТОЛЬКО ДОРОЖИЛ ЭТОЙ КАРТИНОЙ, ЧТО, КОГДА ОН ПИСАЛ ПОРТРЕТ СВОЕГО СЫНА В 1911 ГОДУ, ТО РАЗМЕСТИЛ ЕЁ НА ЗАДНЕМ ПЛАНЕ. ПОРТРЕТ СЫНА СЕЙЧАС ЯВЛЯЕТСЯ ПРИЗНАННЫМ ШЕДЕВРОМ И ЭКСПОНИРУЮТСЯ В ТРЕТЬЯКОВСКОЙ ГАЛЕРЕЕ В МОСКВЕ.
