About the artist: Vasily Semyonovich Korochkin was born on March 5 (17), 1883 in the town of Staraya Russa, Novgorod province (now Novgorod region) in the family of the peasant Semyon and the washerwoman Olga Vasilievna Korochkin. Vasily had two sisters: Anna (later - a village teacher) and Nadezhda (in the future - a seamstress). At two years old, he lost his father, the mother was engaged in raising children.

The desire for drawing was observed in Vasily Semyonovich from an early age. Noticing him, the drawing teacher of the old Russian city school Chistyakov collected money from the city residents by subscription so that a talented child could continue his art education after graduation.

In 1896, at the age of thirteen, Vasily Semyonovich entered the Stieglitz Central School of Technical Drawing in St. Petersburg and four years later successfully completed it. It was during the training that the artist's pseudonym - "Svarog" appeared.
Since 1900, Svarog has been collaborating with the St. Petersburg illustrated magazines "Picturesque Review", "Magic Lantern", "Sun of Russia".
In 1911, V. S. Svarog was awarded the first prize in a competition organized by the editorial board of the "Sun of Russia" magazine for a series of drawings for Leo Tolstoy's "Living Corpse".
In 1915, V.S.Svarog met Yuri Repin and painted his portrait, which delighted his father, the famous artist Ilya Repin. This work allows Svarog to get close to the master, to be present at his portrait sessions.
In 1916, on the recommendation of Repin, he joined the Association of the Itinerants and exhibited his works at traveling exhibitions.
In 1916 Svarog paints "Portrait of a Mother" (oil on canvas). The painting won first prize at the Spring Traveling Exhibition.
In 1918, Svarog takes an active part in decorating Petrograd to celebrate the first anniversary of the October Revolution. The artist himself said that he "worked especially intensively, since great events demanded a great effort from everyone." At this time, he creates portraits of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, V. I. Lenin, M. S. Uritsky, V. V. Volodarsky.
From 1919 to 1922, in connection with a serious illness of his mother, Svarog spent in Staraya Russa. Here he organizes the People's House, creates an art studio, amateur choral and orchestral circles, an amateur opera theater, where Dargomyzhsky's Rusalka, Rachmaninov's Aleko, Gounod's Faust, etc. were staged. During this period, Svarog creates many paintings dedicated to the city and its inhabitants - "Portrait of Vasya Ushakov", "Children" (exhibited at the Tretyakov Gallery), "Portrait of Valentina Kazarina", "Rogachevka" and others.
In 1923 he joined the Association of Artists of Revolutionary Russia.
In 1925 V. S. Svarog received a silver medal at the World Exhibition in Paris for the album "January 9", for which he made 11 large drawings.
In 1942 Svarog finished his last painting - the multi-figured composition "Stepan Razin".
In October 1942, returning from evacuation to Moscow, at the Samarkand railway station, crossing paths with suitcases, V. Svarog stumbled and hit the rail with his left temple. On October 10, in grave condition, he was taken to Moscow. V. Svarog recovered, but could not return to painting.
December 31, 1946 Vasily Semyonovich Svarog died. The artist was buried at the Novodevichy cemetery. The gravestone on the grave of V.S.Svarog was made by his student, People's Artist of the USSR N.V. Tomsky.
In 1948, through the efforts of friends of the artist and his wife Larisa Semyonovna Svarog, a posthumous exhibition of his works was held. It featured paintings, portraits, sketches from the exhibitions of the State Tretyakov Gallery, the State Historical Museum, the Central House of the Soviet Army, the museums of A.S. Pushkin, M.Gorky, the Academy of Arts of the USSR and regional museums.
