  • Description
    Watercolor on archival paper by the Russian/American artist, Nicholai Cikovsky. Signed lower right. In very good condition with no issues. Light toning of paper consistent with age. Beach on the Peconic Bay in Southampton where the artist lived. Circa 1955. Newly matted but retaining original one inch wide gold frame. Overall 19.5 by 23.5 inches.

    Cikovsky was born in Russia in 1894 where he studied at the Vilna
    Art School, 1910-1914; the Penza Royal Art School, 1914-1918; and Moscow High Tech Art Institute, 1921-1923. He emigrated to the United States in 1923, exhibiting in that year in New York City at the Charles Daniels Gallery. In 1942, Cikovsky began spending summers on Long Island, New York, in the North Sea area, where he moved permanently in the late 1970s. He painted many land and seascapes there, and is said to have been an influence on two well-known area painters, Jane Freilicher and Fairfield Porter.

    Cikovsky was a member of New York City institutions, including the National Academy of Design (Associate 1968; Academician 1970); National Institute of Arts and Letters; and Society of Painters, Sculptors, and Engravers.
