Martiros Saryan (1880 1972) was an Armenian painter, the founder of the Armenian national school of painting. He was born into an Armenian family in Nakhichevan-on-Don (now part of Rostov-on-Don, Russia). In 1895, aged 15, he completed the Nakhichevan school and from 1897 to 1904 studied at the Moscow School of Arts, including in the workshops of Valentin Serov and Konstantin Korovin. He was heavily influenced by the work of Paul Gauguin and Henri Matisse. He exhibited his works in various shows. He first visited Armenia, then part of the Russian Empire, in 1901, visiting Haghpat, Shirak, Echmiadzin, Lori, Sanahin, Yerevan and Sevan. He composed his first landscapes depicting Armenia which were highly praised in the Moscow press. Recalling his own background, Saryan said, "My ancestors had come to the banks of the river Don from the Crimea, and to the Crimea from Ani, the capital of medieval Armenia. I was born into a family which followed the old patriarchal customs. There were nine children and I was the seventh." I do not know when the artist was born in me. It was probably in those days when I used to listen to my parents' stories about our mountainous, enchanted country, when I used to run as a small boy over the land around our home, and was filled with joy at the many colors of the butterflies, insects and flowers. Color, light and day- dreaming - those are what fired me".From 19261928 he lived and worked in Paris, but most works from this period were destroyed in a fire on board the boat on which he returned to the Soviet Union. From 1928 until his death, Saryan lived in Soviet Armenia. His former home in Yerevan is now a museum dedicated to his work with hundreds of items on display Martiros Saryan park, Yerevan Sculptor Levon Tokmajyan, 1986 3. Mountains 1923 Date palm 1911 4.
