Eduard Pavlov was part of the "Odessa School of Art" movement in the former Soviet Union during the mid-Twentieth century. The "Odessa School" as it came to be known, originated a distinct impressionistic style in contrast to the social realism painting style dictated by the Soviet Government. Pavlov was born in Belaya Tserkov in the Kiev Region in 1937. In 1960 he graduated from the Republic School of Art in Kishinev and in 1970 joined the NUAU (Union of Professional Artists). His works are held in Museums throughout the former Eastern Bloc and "Summer Sketch" was exhibited in the Odessa Museum of Modern Art.
