About the artist: Alexander Deineka was born on May 8 (20), 1899 in Kursk in the family of a railway worker.

He received his primary education at the Kharkov Art School (1915-1917) under A. M. Lyubimov and M. R. Pestrikov. The artist's youth, like many of his contemporaries, was associated with revolutionary events. In 1918 he worked as a photographer in the criminal investigation department, headed the Fine Arts section of Gubnadobraz, designed agitation trains, theatrical performances, and participated in the defense of Kursk from the Whites. From 1919 to 1920 he headed the art studio at the Kursk Political Administration and the "ROST Windows" in Kursk.

Deineka's grave at the Novodevichy cemetery in Moscow
From the army he was sent to study in Moscow, at the VKHUTEMAS at the printing department, where his teachers were V. A. Favorsky and I. I. Nivinsky (1920-1925). Years of apprenticeship and communication with V.A.Favorsky, as well as meetings with V.V. Mayakovsky became of great importance in the artist's creative development. The artist's creative appearance was clearly and distinctly manifested at the very first major exhibition in 1924 (the first debatable exhibition of associations of active revolutionary art), in which he participated as a member of the Group of Three (together with A. D. Goncharov and Yu. I. Pimenov). During these years he created the first Soviet truly monumental historical-revolutionary painting "Defense of Petrograd" (1928).

Member of art organizations: the Society of Easel Painters (OST) (1925-1927) - one of the founders, the Association of Graphic Artists at the House of Printing (Moscow, 1926-1929), the Association of New Types of Artistic Labor "October" (1928-1930), the Association of Artists revolutionary Russia [5], the Russian Association of Proletarian Artists (RAPH) (1931-1932).

In 1930 the artist created posters "Mechanizing Donbass" and "Sportswoman" expressive in color and composition. In 1931, works, very different in their mood and theme, appeared: "On the Balcony", "Girl at the Window", "Mercenary of the Interventionists".

A new stage in the artist's work began in 1932. The most significant work of this period is the painting "Mother" (1932). In the same years, the artist created lyrical works: "Night Landscape with Horses and Dry Herbs" (1933), "Bathing Girls" (1933), "Noon" (1932), etc. Along with works of lyrical sound, socio-political works: "Unemployed in Berlin" (1933), filled with anger drawings for the novel "Fire" by A. Barbusse (1934).

From the beginning of the 1930s he turned to the theme of aviation ("Parachutist over the Sea", 1934), illustrations for the children's book of the pilot GF Baidukov "Across the Pole to America" ​​(published in 1938). He painted a number of paintings, one of the most romantic - "Future Pilots" (1937).
