Maskhov is best known as a prominent artist in the Jack of Diamonds group. He came to Moscow in 1900 to attend the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture where he studied under Konstantin Korovin and Valentin Serov. Born to a peasant family, his education made it possible for him to travel extensively throughout France, Germany, Austria, England, Spain, Italy, Turkey, and Egypt. In 1909, Mashkov was expelled from school as a result of non-conformist thinking. He then opened his own art school and later exhibited with the World of Art, the Society of Artists, the Golden Fleece, and the Jack of Diamonds group, which he organized.
Estimate: $100,000 - $150,000.

It would indeed have been much simpler to work with a local auction house, and we had local options. But we never once regretted going with Heritage.View More Testimonials
