Agency History/Biographical note:
Konstantine Kalinovitch was born in Novokuznetsk, Russia, in 1960.
He received his training at the Ukraine Institute of Polygraphy. He
specializes in highly-detailed small-scale etchings and
wood-engravings, particularly book plates. In 1992 he was elected an
Associate of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers in Great
Britain. His work has been widely exhibited from Toronto to Moscow.
There were four showings of his work in London during the 1990's
alone. Arthur Rimbaud was a French writer of poems and prose. His
career was brief and brilliant. "Le bateau ivre" was written when he
was 17; it was with this poem that he travelled from Charleville to
Paris and immediate critical acclaim. He abandoned writing for a
mercantile career in Abyssinia, returning to France because of
illness. He died in Marseille, France in 1891 at the age of 37.
