Ekaterina Shuvalova and Veronika Shuvalova, Daughter and Wife of Dmitry Shuvalov
Shuvalov’s creative biography includes many exhibitions, including several personal ones. The most significant one for him personally became the exhibition of 1992 at the Vera Mukhina High School of Art and Industry, St. Petersburg between the very walls where he became a teacher and an artist.

In April 2001 a highly successful exhibition of works by Dmitry Shuvalov took place near Cologne. We were very glad to make Professor Shuvalov’s acquaintance at the vernissage. During those days we had several opportunities to discuss his life and his teaching work with him, as well as his views on creativity.

The theme of colors, the question of what to capture and in what way in order “not to stare at a freshly stretched canvas scratching one’s head” occupied Dmitry Shuvalov all the way back in his student days. He used to tell how he would agonize over the choice of colors, trying to convey the healthy complexion of a sitting model, while the teacher achieved the desired effect effortlessly, choosing a modest English red in lieu of more expensive paints (cad- miums or alizarins).
