Birth: Apr. 4, 1862
Odes'ka, Ukraine
Death: May 31, 1945
Oxfordshire, England

Russian artist, friend and portraitist of Lev Tolstoy, Alfred Einstein and others. Today he is better known as the father of the Russian Nobel-prize winning writer, Boris Pasternak. Leonid studied medicine at Moscow University. He started training as an artist, but had to take lessons privately as he was unable to gain a place at the Arts School. After graduation from medical school, he met Rosa Kauffmann, the pianist, who later became his wife. After the Russian revolution of 1917, the family moved to Germany where they lived until 1938. At the end of the 30's, Pasternak was preparing to return to Russia but his wife's death changed his plans. Instead he moved to Oxford, England, where he fell ill and died in 1945, aged 83.
