    Q&A: I found this to be very moving, but do you agree with her statement that all American artists can just brush politics aside amd not have it affect them?

    This one has something wierd at the 15 minute line, but it lasts about 10 seconds, so it shouldn't be a big deal. Just a forewarning...

    Anna Petrovna Ostroumova was born in St Petersburg on May 17, 1871 into the family of a high official who subsequently became a senator; the second part of her name, Lebedev, she added after her marriage. Between 1889 and 1892, Anna studied at the Stieglitz School of Technical Drawing under Prof. Vasily Mathé. In 1892, she entered the Academy of Arts, at first attending the general classes, but later, between 1896 and 1898, taking instructions from Ilya Repin. While in Paris, in 1898-99, she worked at the studio of the American painter James Whistler.
    Also in Paris she first took up engraving in earnest, continuing her studies in 1899 and 1900, upon her return to St. Petersburg, at the Academy of Arts under Vasily Mathé. Between 1899 and 1903, she stayed in Italy. After her marriage to the chemist Sergei Lebedev in 1905, they visited France, Holland, Belgium, and Spain. Toward the close of the 1900s, she perfected her skills in the technique of the watercolor under Léon Bakst in St. Petersburg. In 1900 she first exhibited her engraving on the World of Art show, and from then on she was closely connected with this art movement.

In 1900 she first exhibited her engraving on the World of Art show, and from then on she was closely connected with this art movement.
    Ostroumova is best known for her woodcuts and engravings. The main theme of her art was St. Petersburg, to which she devoted several series: St. Petersburg (1908-10), Pavlovsk (1922-23), and others.
    Her impressions of her frequent travels abroad (Italy, France, Spain, Holland) are imprinted in interesting and striking works: woodcuts, engravings and water-colors. A gifted and well-educated painter, Ostroumova was not able to work with oils, to which she was allergic and which caused severe asthma attacks.
    The artist spent the Second World War in besieged Leningrad (St. Petersburg), continuing to work. She died on May 5, 1955 in Leningrad (St. Petersburg).

    Video games..
    Some of them yes, those who have original stories, characters, and/or locations(some may just have one or another and not necessarily all three), but keep in mind that most video game designers usually take their characters and places from an already made story and just put them into the virtual world. I know some artists just paint places that people can see any day, so there might not necessarily be any creativity, but at least their not just copying someone else's work into their game, but don't get me wrong, they work hard and are very good at what they do. I just think it needs to be one of their original places, characters, or stories for them to be an artist.
