Description: Anna Petrovna Ostroumova-Lebedeva (1871-1955) Bobbi signed with printed monogram and dated '1925' (lower left) linocut in black, greenish-grey and pink on Japan paper with mica 14½ x 10 in. (37.8 x 27.3 cm.)

Notes: Ostroumova-Lebedeva studied at the Stieglitz School of Technical Drawing before entering the Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg in 1892 where she was taught by Il'ia Repin. She remains best-known for her woodcuts and engravings, particularly those depicting St. Petersburg, but was also an accomplished watercolour artist. She honed this technique under the tutelage of Lèon Bakst during the late 1900s.

Bobbi, the artist's pied French Bulldog, was a popular subject for Ostroumova-Lebedeva; for further studies see A. Benua & Sergei Ernst, Ostroumova-Lebedeva, Moscow, 1923, p. 62 and Christie's, New York, 14 April 2005, lot 5 (fig. 1).

Artist or Maker: Anna Petrovna Ostroumova-Lebedeva (1871-1955)
