Efimov (Fridlyand) Boris Efimovich

15 (28).09.1900 (Kiev)  —  01.10.2008 (Moscow)

Efimov began his career circa 1919, drawing political cartoons for various Russian newspapers, including Russia's most popular and well-known Communist daily, Pravda. Later he also contributed to the Crocodile and Ogonyok magazines founded by his brother Mikhail Koltsov(1898-1942). He received USSR State Prizes in 1950 and 1951 and was named People's Painter of the USSR in 1967.
In 2005 interview to the Russian TV Yefimov recalled his experiences in Petrograd during the Russian Revolution, admitting that he had changed his real name Fridlyand in order to dissimulate the Jewish origins. While his name seems to be best known in Englishas "Efimov", an alternative transliteration of "Yefimov" is also sometimes used.
