Nikolai Semyonovich Shulpinov

Born in Kazan (?) in 1885. Died in Tomsk (?) in 1921. Unfortunately, very little information is available on this artist. Shulpinov studied at the Kazan Art School under N.I. Feshin, and later at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture. He lived in Altai territory from the 1910s, and took part in art exhibitions in the Siberian city of Tomsk. The artist considered himself a representative of the so-called Siberian style in painting. In December 1924–January 1925, seventy of the artist’s paintings were displayed posthumously in Moscow at an exhibition of paintings of the Society of Artists of the Moscow School. Much of Shulpinov’s creative heritage has been lost.
