Tadevosyan (Tatevosyan, Tadevosian), a master of plein-air painting, had a fine perception of the rainbow play of the sun’s rays, of light and shade, atmospheric perspective and nature’s mood. He revealed himself as an Impressionist in hundreds of superb studies, all marked by his amazing, flickering brushwork. Feeling the need for a contemporary artistic language, Tatevosyan moved on and arrived at the post-impressionist style of pointillism.
The artist was born in Echmiadzin and studied at the school attached to the Lazarev Institute in Moscow, moving on to the Moscow School of Painting, were he studied under Vasily Polenov.
Tadevosian’s great achievement lay in that he was able to perceptively reveal the picturesque wealth of the nature of his homeland and to tangibly feel its light.
