Alexander Joltkevich (1872-1943)
He received artistic education between 1907-1917. In 1907 migrated to Paris where he attended A.Bourdel’s studio. From 1911 Joltkevich regularly presented his works at Salons. 1917 Joltkevich left all his works in his Paris studio and returned to Russia, but there he was involved mainly in activity of Commission for Control of Exportation of artistic values abroad (he was a head of Commission) and could hardly find time for creative work. Part of his works left in Paris were delivered in Moscow by sculptor O. Meschaninov in 1925.
