Boris Fedorovich Borzin (other spellings: Borzine, Borsin) (1923-1991) was a Ukranian born Soviet Realism painter, graphic artist, conservator, art historian and author. Boris Borzin was a veteran of the Great Patriotic War. After the war, he spent many years leading the restoration of architectural sites and historic landmarks of Leningrad and it's outskirts, which were damaged during the great siege of Leningrad. For over 30 years he was a painter and graphic artist and taught fine art and graphics in Herzen State Pedagogical University of Russia, (formerly Leningrad State Pedagogical Institute). Boris was a member of Saint Petersburg Union of Artists. His work is a representation of the Leningrad school of painting. He was nominated for the honorary title "Meritorious Activist of Art of the Soviet Union", but died before he could be bestowed the title.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Boris Borzin graduated with distinction from the Lithuanian State Art Institute ( his diploma work being exhibited at the national exhibition of students' diploma works in Moscow). He did his post-graduate studies at the department of Improvement of Professional Skills of the Moscow Stroganov Art School, and later his candidate work at The Russian Academy of Arts in Saint Petersburg], Russia. In 1969 he received a Candidate of Art History Degree.

Boris was a member of the St. Petersburg Union of Soviet Artists, taking part in more than 60 art exhibitions in St. Petersburg, Moscow and abroad ( in Japan, Finland, Great Britain, France, Spain, Sweden) where a number of his works were bought by private collectors and art galleries, and acquired by Fine Arts Foundation of Russian Federation, and later by Russian State Museum in St. Petersburg. He participated in almost all of the Exhibitions of Leningrad artists[1][2][3][4], "Our Contemporaries"[5][6] exhibitions organized by the State Russian Museum, in the Central Exhibition Hall, at the premises of the St. Petersburg Union of Artists, as well as in exhibitions "Russian Landscape", "50 years of Soviet Power" and in many other regional[7], republican and national art exhibitions. Throughout his artistic career Boris Borzin always remained true to the best traditions of Russian realism school. As Nadezhda Neshataeva wrote in his biography 'Boris Borzin' "His ethereal color palette and lyricism in his landscape and still-life paintings are evidence of a deep appreciation of nature. "

During the Great Patriotic war of 1941-45 Boris served in the Field Forces and marched with his military unit from Stalingrad on the Volga to Berlin. After the war he painted many genre paintings, such as his well-known triptych "Leningrad - Boundaries of Glory"[8] (owned by Museum of the Defense and Siege of Leningrad), and his graphic portraits of veterans[9] (acquired by the Fine Arts Foundation of Russian Federation). After the war, for 8 years, Boris Borzin lead a team in the restoration and conservation of murals and ceiling paintings of a number of historic landmarks in St. Petersburg and its suburbs, most notably (the Hermitage, the Summer Palace, Yelagin Palace, Saint Isaac's Cathedral , Monplaisir Palace and others). While working in conservation Boris studied and made observations of iconographs, restoration and archiving materials, and authored a book on the subject titled "Rospisi petrovskogo vremeni" (Decorative Art in Time of Peter The Great)[10]. For this book in 1988 Boris was awarded the silver medal of the Academy of Arts of USSR. For about 30 years Boris Borzin taught fine art at the Herzen State Pedagogical University of Russia (formerly Leningrad State Pedagogical Institute). He also wrote several publications on the topic of artistic education.

Among Boris's landscape paintings are the series titled 'Along the Green Belt of Russia', 'Near the Azov Sea', 'In Caucus Mountains', as well as those depicting St. Petersburg and its suburbs. "They stand out for their high technical skill and fine lyricism, which conveys Boris's inherent connection to nature"- Eleonora Krainskaya, biography 'Boris Borzin'[11]. Several of these landcapes were purchased by the administration of Peterhoff palaces and parks, by the Benois Family Museum and by the Museum of the History of St. Petersburg .

In 1991 two personal posthumous exhibitions of Boris Borzin's paintings and graphic works took place in St. Petersburg in Rossi Pavilion of the Summer Gardens and in the Benois Family Museum in Peterhoff. In 1992 Boris had three personal exhibitions; a large personal exhibition of Boris's works was opened in Yelagin Palace in St. Petersburg, and a large number of his portraits of chess players were exhibited at the Chess Club of Chegorin. Later in spring, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Hall displayed his graphic portraits of famous musicians sketched during the concerts.
