Mikhail Vrubel 1856 –1910

In 1901, Vrubel returned to the demonic themes in the large canvas Demon Downcast. In order to astound the public with a spiritual message, he repeatedly repainted the demon's ominous face, even after the painting had been exhibited to the overwhelmed audience. In the winter of 1910, Vrubel deliberately stood before an open window,completely naked, in the middle of winter and caught a cold. The same year he died from pneumonia and was buried in St. Petersburg.
