Yuly Klever (Jr.)
/1882-1942/

Yuly Klever Jr. was a notable Russian and Soviet painter. Born in 1882 as the son of artist Yuly Kleve Sr., he received his early art education in his father's workshop. Later, from 1906 to 1908, he furthered his studies at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts. Subsequently, he lived and worked in St. Petersburg.

After completing his formal education, Yuly Klever spent several years developing his unique artistic style. He primarily focused on still life paintings, occasionally exploring other genres. Klever became a member of the art association called the "Society of Artists named after Arkhip Kuindzhi." From 1902 to 1906 and again from 1909 to 1917, Klever Jr. shared his expertise as a teacher at the Drawing School affiliated with the Society for the Encouragement of the Arts. Tragically, Yuli Yulievich Klever passed away in 1942 during the siege of Leningrad, leaving behind a significant artistic legacy.
