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.
