Guram (Hita) Kutateladze (გურამ (ხიტა) ქუთათელაძე) was born in 1924 in Tbilisi into the family of artist Apolon Kutateladze. He studied in David Kakabadze’s workshop at the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts, and later enrolled at the Surikov Art Institute in Moscow. In 1955 he became a member of the Artists’ Union of the USSR, and from 1965 began his teaching career at the Tbilisi Academy of Arts. During this period his works were presented at various large-scale exhibitions, followed by a personal exhibition that was organized posthumously at the Tbilisi National Gallery in 1980, and in Moscow in 1981. Guram Kutateladze’s paintings are mainly focused on depicting expressionist landscapes. The best examples from his oeuvre are preserved at museums in Georgia, Russia, and Germany, as well as in private collections.
