Interest in the portrait by Boris Grigoryev (1886-1939) of a girl painted in 1917 has been such that we have turned up another portrait, this time of the photographer M.A.Scherling. This was in the collction of Professor Ilya Paleev, now in herited by his son Vladimir Ilich who lives in an overheated and grand apartment in the Academy of Science in St. Petersburg, on the Quay of Peter the Great. Starting in the year 1919, Boris travelled and lived abroad in Finland, Germany, and France, where he died in 1939 in Cagnes-sur-Mer , a suburb of Nice ***. This is where Renoir died at his estate , Les Collettes. This is a detail of Scherling's portrait and the complete picture can be seen here.
A stunning self portrait of Leonid Terentevich Chupyatov (1890 - 1942) probably painted in the 1920's, lives in the same room.
A larger hi-res pic can be seen here
*** As an example of the shite on the web here is a purported print of a painting by Grigoryev from his studio in Cagnes sur Mer sold by a Russian set of Hucksters called Agripohoto !!!
