Abraham Jacob Bogdanove (September 1886- August 1946) was an American artist, mural painter, and teacher best known for his seascape paintings of the Maine coast, particularly around Monhegan Island. Bogdanove was born in Minsk, (Russian Empire now Belarus), in early September 1886, and moved with his family to New York City in 1900.[1] For the next ten years he studied, first at Cooper Union, then at the National Academy of Design, and finally at Columbia University School of Architecture, while simultaneously painting advertisement displays and drafting for the New York Journal.[1] From 1909 to 1911 he received prizes for his paintings in National Academy exhibitions. In 1912 Bogdanove received his first mural commission from the Hebrew Sheltering and Guardian Society in Pleasantville, New York; subsequently he painted murals for the Architectural League of New York, Commercial High School, Brooklyn, Manual Training High School, Brooklyn, Public School 43, Bronx, and the College of the City of New York.[1] Bogdanove first visited Maine in 1915, summering at Mount Desert Island, and in 1918 he visited Monhegan Island, purchasing a house there in 1920;[1] thereon he visited Monhegan every year until his death in 1946, becoming an established presence on the island and producing a series of landscapes and seascapes that would constitute the largest part of his painting.[2] For his interest in the powerful dramatic effects of weather on the ocean and land, rather than geographically specific depictions, Bogdanove has been characterized as an heir to Winslow Homer.[3] Of his work on Monhegan, described as "rugged, colorful, and forceful"[4], Bogdanove wrote in 1936, There are a number of reasons why I prefer Monhegan to all other places on the Atlantic coast.... The cliffs are so bold and precipitous and the studies offered by the island shore so inexhaustible. The climate suits me. Perhaps [it is] because it is more like that of Russia, where my ancestors lived.[4] In an interview in 1945, he explained, I have painted the Gaspe, the cliffs of Cornwall, the Riviera, but there's a magnetic force in these rocks here, I believe, which brings us back again and again.[5] From 1913 to 1942 Bogdanove taught art at high schools and colleges in New York City, the longest association being with Townsend Harris High School of the College of the City of New York.[1] In 1942 Bogdanove moved to Dunbarton, New Hampshire, where he died in 1946.[1] In 1957 he was the subject of an exhibition at the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, Maine, and in 1961 at the College of the City of New York.[1] Notes ^ a b c d e f g Gerdts, p. 63 ^ Call of the Coast: Art Colonies of New England at the Portland Museum of Art ^ Gerdts, p. 14 ^ a b Chambers, p. 13 ^ Little, p.95 References Gerdts, William H.; Peters, Lisa N.
