    Angelina Beloff was born Angelina Petrovna Belovna in St Petersburg in 1879. Raised in a family of intellectuals she was encouraged to paint from an early age, and enrolled at the St Petersburg Academy of Arts. She moved to Paris in 1909, where she worked in the studio of Henry Matisse and later of Spanish painter Hermenegildo Anglada Camarasa. Her work matured during this period, encouraged by the fertile artistic environment, and she exhibited regularly at the Salon des Indépendents between 1912 and 1930. Paul Cézanne was perhaps most decisively influential to her style, an affinity clearly felt in the present work, particularly in her understanding of volume and structure and in her color palette.

    Beloff met Diego Rivera in Brussels in 1909, and they married the same year. Their relationship was strained by the difficulties of living in Paris during World War I, and Beloff was forced to find work in order to support them both and to allow Rivera to continue painting. Rivera left Beloff in Paris behind when he returned to Mexico in 1921, and eventually filed for divorce. With the support of a number of Mexican friends she immigrated to Mexico City in 1932 and continued her artistic career there, exhibiting at the Galeria de Arte Mexicano and the Salón de la Plástica Mexicana among others. She worked in oil and watercolor, created book illustrations, was a master printer and designed stage sets and marionettes. The Museo Dolores Olmedo, Xochimilco, Mexico, holds a significant collection of Beloff's work.
