Birth: Nov. 5, 1878
Death: Mar. 3, 1927

He was a Russian writer and playwright, and a major proponent of the literary style known as naturalism. He was the great grandson of Tadeusz Kosciuszko and the father of Boris Artzybasheff, who emigrated to the United States and became famous as an illustrator. His father was a small landowner and a former officer. His mother died of tuberculosis when he was only 3 years old. He attended school in Okhtyrka until the age of 16. From 1895 to 1897 he was an office worker. He studied at the Kharkov School of Drawing and Art (1897–1898). In 1898 he relocated to Saint Petersburg, where he worked as a freelance journalist, and published humorous stories. In 1901 he was expelled from the city for taking part in a demonstration. He wrote his first important work of fiction, the story Pasha Tumanov in 1901, but was unable to publish it until 1905 due to its being banned by the censor. He considered his novel The Death of Ivan Lande (1904) to be his best work, but his major success was the novel Sanin (1907), which scandalized his Russian readers and was prohibited in many countries. He moved to Moscow in 1912. In 1917-18 he published his anti-Bolshevik work Notes of a Writer. Selected works: The Millionaire, Ivan Lande, and Nina, (stories/short novels), B.W. Huebsch, NY, 1915; The Revolutionist, (story), from Best Russian Short Stories, Boni and Liveright, 1917; The Jew, (story), from The Shield, Alfred A. Knopf, NY, 1917.
