Nikodim Yurevich Silivanovich

1834-1919 Lithuania/Painter, Mosaicists

 

Brief Biography-Nikodim Yurevich Silivanovich of a serf family received his education in a private school in Maladzyechna. In his later work as a tutor to children, his employer realised his artistic talents and sent him for schooling in Saint Petersburg. He entered the Imperial Academy of Arts under Carl Timoleon von Neff. Then, after working as a portraitist in Vilnius for a spell, he studied mosaics back in Saint Petersburg. He undertook many commissions there and, in 1881, was awarded the Order of Saint Stanislaus. He lived most of his life in the spa town of Birštonas before moving to Moscow during WW1; it is unknown where he died.
