Dmitry Zhilinsky was one of the most important Soviet artists of the 1960s. He studied under some of the era’s greats: Pavel Korin, Semyon Chuikov, Alexei Gritsai, Vladimir Favorsky, and Ivan Efimov. He painted numerous different narrative, landscape and still life paintings, but also worked a great deal in the portrait genre. His subjects included the musician Salivator’s Richter, the artists Vladimir Favorsky, Ivan Efimov, and Nikolai Chernyshev, well-known writers and composers, and members of his own family. In the 1990s Zhilinsky created a series of formal portraits of members of the Danish royal family. Many of his works, including “Self Portrait” (1993), are held in the Institute of Russian Realist Art collection.
