Kirill Lemokh
/1841-1910/

Kirill Lemokh was a renowned household painter who received his artistic education at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture, as well as the Academy of Fine Arts. Alongside Kramskoy Lemokh departed from the academy to join the "artel of free artists." In 1868, he gained recognition when his painting "Family Grief" was presented at the Academy, earning him the esteemed title of first-degree class artist. Subsequently, Lemokh exhibited seven new paintings in 1875, which led to his appointment as an academician.

Lemokh's artistic focus centered on capturing scenes from Russian peasant life, often featuring children. His specialty lay in depicting the world of children with a sentimental and pitiful tone. This theme frequently recurred in his works, emphasizing the tender and emotive nature of childhood. Lemokh's paintings exhibited meticulous attention to detail and a faithful representation of color, albeit without excessive vibrancy. Notably, his artworks were typically small in size.
