Dzhagupova Maria Markovna (1897, Armavir, Krasnodar Territory -1967, Leningrad, Russia) - an artist whose work is habitually attributed to social realism. At the same time, she was a staunch follower of the ideas of the "father of Suprematism."
Loyal student Kazimir Malevich, Maria Dzhagupova first studied at the drawing school of the Society for the Encouragement of Arts in Petrograd at Ivana Bilibin (1915-1917), then in the studio of Fyodor Rerberg in Moscow. With Malevich, the artist worked in Leningrad in the 1930s.
Maria Dzhagupova died tragically in 1975.
Many works of the artist lost, and story with a picturewhich Dzhagupova herself highly valued, can serve as the basis for an art detective story. The work was recently attributed to Malevich.
