PAKHOMOV Alexey Fedorovich (1900-1973, Leningrad) graphic artist, painter, people's artist of the USSR (1971), full member of the Academy of Arts of the USSR (1964). Lived in Petrograd from 1915. Was trained at the Central College of Technical Drawing in 1915-17 and 1918-22, under V. V. Lebedev. He studied at the Academy of Arts under N. A. Tyrsa in 1922-25. He worked at the Windows of ROST in 1919. He belonged to the society Circle of Artists from 1926 to 1932. He taught at the Academy of Arts from 1948 to 1973 and was a professor from 1949. He connected the methods of ancient Russian painting with innovations of the beginning of the 20th century. He created romantic images of his contemporaries, poeticized youth, labour themes, physical training and sports, such paintings as The Tennis-Player, 1925, and The Girl in Blue, 1929. He gave up painting at the end of the 1930s and concentrated on graphic arts. He contributed to children's magazines Chizh, Ezh and Koster. He illustrated books for children, the Master (1927), and Ball (1933), by S. Y. Marshak; and the collection of stories by Leo Tolstoy Filipok: Pages of the ABC-book, 1968-1970. He tried to achieve authentic portrayals of life in his depictions of children. He created the series of lithographs Leningrad in the Days of the Siege 1942-44, approximately 30 pages. He was awarded Stalin Prize in 1946 and the State Prize of the USSR in 1973. He lived at 15 Liteiny Avenue until 1935, at 14 Kamennoostrovsky Avenue from 1935 to 1954, where a memorial plaque is located. He was buried at Bogoslovskoe Cemetery.
