M. Dobužinskis. Spring in Kaunas. 1923



The world-renowned artist Mstislav Valerianovich Dobuzhinsky (Lithuanian: Mstislavas Dobužinskis) (1875–1957) is most known for his accomplishments in scenography (or stage design). During his lifetime, he designed over forty sets for both operas and plays.

Dobuzhinsky set the foundation for stage design in Lithuania. Although Dobuzhinsky’s talents were acknowledged across the globe – in the great operas of Paris, London, Rome, Naples, as well as Brussels, and even later at New York’s Metropolitan Opera, his work is not limited to the stage.

Of noble Lithuanian extraction, the young Dobuzhinsky spent much of his childhood in Vilnius. Dobuzhinsky painted and drew cityscapes, which along with his scenography sketches were exhibited in both Europe and the United States. He was even noted to be an excellent teacher, having trained Lithuania’s most famous stage designers and painters. In 1924, Dobuzhinsky became a citizen of the newly independent Republic of Lithuania.
