Boris Georgiev

(1888- 1962)

He was born in Var­na. When he was 14, his fam­i­ly moved to St. Peters­burg, Rus­sia's cap­i­tal at the time. He was still hes­i­tant about what a career to make: of a paint­er, of a trav­el­ler or of a phi­los­o­pher. The future would tell that he was to carve out all the three. In St. Peters­burg, sev­er­al Rus­sian aris­to­crats con­nois­seurs of art imme­di­ate­ly spot­ted his draw­ings and decid­ed to pay his train­ing at the School of Art. It was a gold­en oppor­tu­ni­ty for him to both hone his skills and meet Nich­o­las Roer­ich, a most char­is­mat­ic fig­ure in his­to­ry. As ear­ly as that time his typ­i­cal man­ner was already dis­cern­a­ble in the details: fine lines, pas­tel shades, a flair for fine­ness and smooth tran­si­tion between forms. All this excit­ed much admi­ra­tion among his teach­ers in Munich, where he stud­ied, but true to his adven­tur­ous side, he could not make do with the idea of set­ting up as a paint­er in Ger­ma­ny. His way­far­ing mind dreamed of a free­wheel­ing life, of keep­ing com­pa­ny with flow­ers, birds and stars and he head­ed for Ita­ly. At first he set­tled in the south­ern part of the Apen­nines then went to the north and toured the Alps. How­e­ver, he nev­er sev­ered his rela­tions with Bul­gar­ia, so he came back home and con­trib­ut­ed to the Hyper­i­on lit­er­ary mag­a­zine. His con­tacts with Bein­sa Duno, with whom they found com­mon talk­ing points, left an indel­i­ble mark on his life.Thou­sands of peo­ple, includ­ing Albert Ein­stein were fas­ci­nat­ed by Boris Geor­gi­ev's airy paint­ings. The famous sci­en­tist was cap­tured by the mag­ic of his ten­der and refined works to the point to agree to sit for him. He liked his por­trait so much that sent him a let­ter of grat­i­tude. The paint­er's exalt­ed pie­ces gained rec­og­ni­tion from anoth­er leg­end­ary fig­ure, Mahat­ma Gan­dhi. They met dur­ing his jour­ney to India, where he met also Rabin­dra­nath Tag­o­re.
