I post today about Russian artist Mai Miturich (1925-2008). Why? He is a Muscovite, his exhibition is now in Tsereteli's Art gallery (Prechistenka, 19) and will go on till 11th November, he illustrated the books of my childhood and I want to share with you his so very talented works.

Besides we have 4 holidays and low gray raining sky, so I will be glad if our readers, located in Moscow, read this and would like to see his priceless works.
Unfortunately there is almost nothing about Mai Miturich in the internet, so I start by my own photo taken at the exhibition today and go on with the photos from Livejournal "All Drawings" community and bits of info I found when googling.

The exhibition shows that Mai Miturich was not only famous illustrator, but very talented painter and his watercolors were full of light, freedom and ease.
Miturich worked in watercolor, oil, ink, graphic arts and known here by his illustration to L.Carrol's "Alice's Adventures", R.Kiplings' "Mowgli Stories" and Russian writers for children. Mostly they do not know the name here.
But if you show the book to the adult, he will immediately recognize the drawings of his/her childhood.
