Over many years, Solodov has been the center of numerous one-man exhibitions in Moscow at the renowned House of Artists and in various towns throughout Russia. His works are known for their rich “northern palette’ of color and their luminous paint quality. His works are hung in the collections of the Tretyakov State gallery in Moscow and the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg.

But Vsevolod didn’t start out on that track. Born in the Rzhev region of Russia he was an accomplished student during the years from 1948 to 1953, participating in the final work on the famous 1905 Monument in Moscow. He was then recruited into the theatre for the development of sets and stage design. Vsevolod’s artistic sense earned him an outstanding reputation in the theater world. He earned credit for the artistic design in 82 important and successful productions in Moscow, Tver and Tomsk during the 1950’s. But that was not where his heart lay.

Vsevolod Solodov’s calling was landscape painting. Starting in 1960, he applied his considerable talent to painting from nature with the same vigor that had driven him in the design of stage and sets. Emerging as a very prolific painter, he was well collected throughout the world through his theatre connections. In 1966, he was given the award, Honored Artist of the Soviet Union. During his painting years he moved to Tver and became an active member of the Academic Dacha.

Today, a much-loved figure in the art community of Tver, Solodov continues to paint and sell his works to collectors from around the globe.
