(Russian, 1922-1994)

     Eugene Garin was born in 1922 in Odessa, Russia.  He is perhaps the most  influential  contemporary seascape artist.  This Russian-born master has  spawned and inspired many of today's great  seascapists through his tremendous talent and imagination. Garin is best known for his  rendition of  the transparent wave.   Influenced  by  the Russian painter Peter Effremovich  Fedatov during his youth  in Odessa,  Russia and later by the works of I.  K.  Aivazowsky, Garin has  combined  the  traditional  beauty  of European  art  with contemporary techniques developed by his own hand.  With a prominent career extending over four decades, he broke through  barriers  in seascape painting technique that had restrained artists for years.

      Using  texture and a variety of translucent glazes,  Garin creates compositions  that are bold, yet controlled.  His compositions  are unique  and varied, from shipwreck scenes, to romantic moonlit ocean breakers, to sun-drenched seascapes at dusk, to misty coastal coves. The  sea  is always the commanding force in his paintings, its  rich beauty and vastness  exemplifies in each composition.   The  vivid emotional  impact which Garin creates excites the. imagination and stirs our inner desire to challenge its eternal domain.

       Considered  the. patriarch of modern seascape art, his paintings hang in many major collections throughout the globe, including Canada, England,  South America, South Africa, Japan, Mexico and Russia,  as well  as hundreds of American homes.  Eugene Garin is an artist who appeals  to  both the novice collector and the connoisseur.   He  is listed  in Who's Who in California and the American Art Analog. Garin has  artwork  in  the permanent  collection  of  the Russian Consulate  in San Francisco along with the Presidential  Palace  in Panama.  Garin has been featured in national magazines and his works have  been on tour around the world for public display.  Admired  by art  critics  and his contemporaries, Garin is assured a place in history.
