His uncle was a famous writer, Alexei Feofilaktovich Pisemsky, regarded as an equal of Ivan Turgenev in his time. Alexei Alexandrovich began his studies at secondary school in the regional town of Kostroma, but at the insistence of his patron he left before finishing the course in order to enroll at the Imperial Academy of Arts in St Petersburg (1878-1890). He studied landscape painting under Mikhail Klodt and Yuli Klever and exhibited with the Itinerants from 1887-1889. He is best known for his oils, which were immensely popular among collectors including Pavel Tretyakov and the Imperial family, but he was also a stalwart member of the Society of Russian Watercolourists and celebrated illustrator. Remarkably for the period, he traveled to North Africa in the 1890s.
