Michail Markianovich Germasev was born in 1867 in Volchansk, in the Kharkov province of Ukraine and studied at the Moscow College of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture.  In 1897 he was awarded the prize of Moscow Society of Art Lovers for his painting Snow, later acquired by Pavel M. Tretyakov.


Germasev lived in Moscow. He painted mainly landscapes, still lives and genre subjects and continued the traditions of the Peredvizhniki (Wanderers or Itinerants) whose original rebellion towards the Imperial Academy in 1863 had mellowed somewhat and where landscape painting flourished from the 1880’s onwards.  Among his favourite subjects was the winter landscape of Middle Russia, capturing the setting sun spreading its warm glow across the trees and snow.


Germasev exhibited widely, including the Spring exhibitions of the Imperial Academy of Arts, and the Society of Traveling Art Exhibitions 1901–1914, and was a member of Moscow Association of Artists. After the October Revolution, Germasev took part in the exhibition of painting, sculpture and industrial art in Ryazan in 1918, and the in State exhibition in Moscow in 1919.


In 1920 Germasev immigrated to Paris where he exhibited at Sociéte des Artistes Français, 1927. Works by Mikhail Germasev are in many museum and private collections, including the State Tretyakov Gallery, Irkutsk Regional Art Museum and others.
