Artist, art theorist.


Petr Vasilevich Miturich was born on October 14, 1887 into the family of a hereditary military man and a writer in St. Petersburg. 

From 1900 to 1905 he studied in the Pskov military school, where he was expelled from for storage of illegal literature. 

From 1906 to 1909 he studied in the Kiev Art School under I.F.Seleznev, who was a costudent and a friend of Mikhail Vrubel. From 1909 to 1915 he studied under Mykola Samokysh in the Petersburg Academy of Arts.

Petr Miturich participated in World War I and Civil War. In the 1910s — 1920s he was a friend of Leo Bruni, Vladimir Tatlin, Nina Niss-Goldman, Nikolay Punin, and futurists. From that period his portraits of the poets Osip Mandelstam and Vyacheslav Ivanovich Ivanov, the musician Arthur Lourié, a posthumous portrait of Mikhail Vrubel, etc. are known. In the early 1920s he was a bosom friend of Velimir Khlebnikov, who died in the artist’s family in Santalovo Village (the Novgorod Province). Petr Miturich’ Santalovo cycle of works of 1922 — 23 (portraits of the poet, landscapes, and graphic images inspired by poetic creativity of Velimir Khlebnikov) represents the gold fund of domestic graphic art. 
From 1923 to 1930 he taught in Higher Art and Technical Studios, where a circle of his adherent students was developed. Besides his art heritage, Petr contributed a significant amount of art theoretical works and diaries.
Petr Miturich died in Moscow on October 27, 1956 and was laid down to rest at the Novodevichy Cemetery.
