Alexey Korin was born in Palekh, in a family of hereditary icon painters, and his passion for drawing came to him in early childhood. Following the family tradition, at the beginning of his career, he followed in the footsteps of his grandfather and father, but later left icon painting and entered the portrait class of MUZHViZ. His teachers were such famous artists and educators as V.G. Perov, I. M. Pryanishnikov, V. E. Makovsky and V. D. Polenov. In 1889, Alexei Mikhailovich completed his studies with the Great Silver Medal and the title of class artist, and five years later he was invited to his native School as a teacher. Among the students of Korin the teacher are A. Plastov, M. Saryan, A. Gerasimov, B. Ioganson and other famous Soviet painters.
