Born in the town of Chernevko, Gregori’s artistic education consisted of graduating from the Grekov Art College in Odessa in 1932 and completing an advanced course for painters at the Moscow State Art Institute, named after Vasilii Surikov in 1941. Among his teachers were well-known painters Igor Grabar, V. Baksheyev and L. Kramarenko.

Tseitlin’s work embraces the traditions of the Russian and Soviet realistic school of painting. Although known primarily for his enthralling portraits, Tseitlin painted landscapes, still-lifes and ancient Russian towns and villages as well. His portraits are celebrated for their depiction of individual personalities, revealing and depicting the psychology of the sitter in natural poses. His other works portray this artist’s love of life and optimistic view of the world; his luminous palette making his perceptions fresh and captivating.

Grigori Tsietlin’s paintings are hung in many Russian museum collections including the Tretyakov Art Gallery, the Kharkov Art Museum and the Kazan Museum of Fine Arts. The artist’s works are also prized in many international private collections.
