Painter, graphic artist,  designer, scene-designer Alexander Serebryakoff was  a son of the painter Z. E. Serebryakova. He spent his childhood in St. Petersburg and in the  estate Neskuchnoye. He did not receive any art education, he studied on his  own. In 1925 Serebryakoff emigrated abroad; after several removals, he settled with  his mother in Paris. In 1926 Serebryakoff painted  a series of geographical maps as decorative design for temporary exhibitions in  the Museum of Decorative   Art in Paris. In 1928 Serebryakoff made  his successful début at the exhibition of Russian artists in the gallery of M.  S. Lesnick in Paris.  Later he took part in many group exhibitions in Paris  galleries, exposed his works in Prague and Brussels. In 1931, when the  Colonial Exhibition in Paris ended, Serebryakoff  painted a cycle of big decorative panels for Paris Colonial   Museum. In 1934–1935 the  artist together with his mother Z. E. Serebryakova was engaged in interior  design of the estate of Baron de Brouwer near Brussels. Serebryakoff painted  watercolor landscapes of Paris;  he also was engaged in scene design together with A. N. Benois and Ch. Berard. Serebryakoff  worked as a scene-designer under the guidance of the artist P. N. Schildknecht for  French cinematograph, designed and illustrated books for French, American and  Belgian publishing houses — Our  France. Album for children (1934); Venok.  Poems by Lolly Lvov  (1938); Twilight of the Gods (1938).  He collaborated with different vogue magazines. In 1930s the artist traveled  through France and Belgium, and  painted landscapes. In 1941 Serebryakoff together  with architect Emilio Terry worked on decorative design of interiors and park  pavilions of the Château de Groussay near Versailles,  which belonged to the famous art collector and Cultural Attaché of Spain Carlos  de Beistegui. During the postwar years  Serebryakoff was engaged in the projects of interior designs of the museums and  rich mansions, which were under reconstruction. There he painted illusive wall  paintings with bookcases and porcelain collections skillfully. In 1946 the artist  created scene design for the ballet La Sylphide by J. Schneitzhoeffer staged by V. Gzovsky for the Ballet des Champs   Elysees. Serebryakoff together with A. N. Benois drew  illustrations to the poem Grigory Orlov by A. A. Popov. In 1950 he designed the ballet Giselle by A. Adam (production was not realized). In 1951 Serebryakoff  drew a series of watercolors with scenes of grandiose costume ball, organized  by Carlos de Beistegui in Palazzo Labia in Venice. In 1969 he created a series of works with  scenes of the Oriental ball given by Baron Alexis de Redé in the Hôtel Lambert  on the Île Saint-Louis in Paris. Later Serebryakoff  painted detailed interiors of famous private castles and palaces in France, England  and Austria.  In 1985 the retrospective common exhibition of A. B. Serebryakoff and his  sister E. B. Serebryakova was organized in Paris. In 1987 retrospective exhibition of  the artist was held in Didier Aaron Gallery  in New York. Alexander Serebryakoff  followed the traditions of the art group Mir  Iskusstva (“World of Art”). He created chamber artworks, which were characterized  by diminutiveness, stylization, decorative colors and predominance of graphic  elements over pictorial ones. As the artists of the group Mir Iskusstva, Serebryakoff painted mainly in watercolors.
