Ryangina Serafima Vasilyevna
Serafima Ryangina comes from a generation of artists who have come to the Soviet art scene with a luggage of classic art education. She started her creative life at a well-known private Yan Tsionglinsky’s studio in St.Petersburg. Since 1912, she studied at the Imperial Academy of Fine Arts in the class of Dmitry Kardovsky.
Rtangina was a member of the Association of Artists of Revolutionary Russia from the first days of its foundation. In 1934, the artist created a painting called "All Is Higher!" which has become an archetypal example of socialist realism, in which the youth of the USSR were personified by the figures of ironworkers - the beautiful young men and women. The main motif in Ryangina's art was the scenes of everyday modern life. Serafima Riangina's paintings are represented at The State Tretyakov Gallery (Moscow), The State Russian Museum (St. Petersburg), and at many museums in Russia and the ex-USSR.
