KALAUSHIN Boris Matveevich (1929, Leningrad - 1999, St. Petersburg), book artist, painter. He studied in the Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture under Mikhail Taranov (1950-56). He illustrated over 100 children's books, including V. Gubarev's The Kingdom of Crooked Mirrors (Мoscow, 1956), Andersen's The Emperor's New Clothes (Leningrad, 1956), B. Potter's The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle (Leningrad, 1958), Yury Olesha's Three Fat Men (Leningrad, 1959). He painted half-abstract women's portraits and landscapes that were not exhibited until 1987. His paintings naturally fuse structural forms of landscapes and men with rich colours inspiring the full-blooded feel of nature. Kalaushin developed and promoted ideas of Russian avant-garde. In 1991, he became a member of the Apollon Music and Art Society and initiated publishing the anthology with the same name (1994-96) and an art gallery (1996, 13 Millionnaya Street). Kalaushin's works are on display in the State Russian Museum, the State Tretyakov Gallery, and the Museum of the Academy of Arts. He lived at 27 Millionnaya Street and is buried at Kuzmolovskoye cemetery near St. Petersburg.
