Artist Biography

On November 1, 1898 Boris Riabouchinsky was born in Moscow, Russia. Due to his families finances, Riab studied at many different art schools in Moscow. In 1917, Riab's family fled Russia after the Bolshevik Party gained power. Pursuing hunting and sport, he traveled through out the world before he settled in France in 1927. It was then he changed his last name from Riabouchinsky to Riab. Riab mostly painted watercolors of hunting dog portraits and wild fowl. He also printed limited edition engravings of studies of setters, spaniels, retrievers, ducks, pheasants, pointers, partridges, snipes, and woodcocks.
