Alexander Gromov

Born in 1886. Studied at Drawing School of the Imperial Society for the Encouragement of the Arts (together with Alexandra Shchekotikhina-Pototskaya), under such prominent Russian artists and representatives of the Mir Iskusstva (Art World) circles as Nicholas Roerich and Ivan Bilibin. Но именно творчество Рериха оказало огромное влияние на Громова. Later studied at Art Academy and St Petersburg University.
