Brief Biography-Julius Sergius von Klever was born in Tartu, Estonia. His father who was a chemist, had him entered into the Imperial Academy of Arts in Saint Petersburg to study architecture, but Julius decided he preferred landscape painting. He was expelled from the Academy in 1871 for an undisclosed reason and he went on to exhibit his works, which proved to be a success. His paintings were acquired by notables and he came to the attention of Tsar Alexander II. He was named an Academician in 1878, and Tsar Alexander III purchased further works. He was subsequently made professor at the Academy. His studio became inundated with orders until an associate caused him to be implicated in a financial scandal, he ceased painting and fled to Germany under duress, he didn’t return until 1915. He spent the reminder of his life teaching at the Academy under the new Soviet administration. His primary output was landscapes.
