Biography

Aleksandr Yakovlev, an ethnic Russian, studied from 1905-13 at the Imperial Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg. In 1913 he was allowed to study abroad and went to Italy and Spain, returning to Russia in 1915. From 1917-19 he travelled to Mongolia, China, and Japan before he went to Paris and obtained French citizenship. Although he probably had a French citizenship already in 1924, he is listed as Russian in the 1924 entry lists. In 1924 and 1925 he travelled to Africa. Yakovlev's paintings ranged from Renaissance to Primitivism and were later completed with African influences and exotic paintings.
