His numerous paintings of mediterranean seascapes won him popularity among art collectors, such as the russian czars, the ottoman sultan, and among the various nobility in many countries. His dramatic depiction of a sea storm with the survivors from a shipwreck, known as 'the ninth wave' (1850), made him extremely famous. The original canvas is in the state russian museum in st.

Most of his works were made on a longstanding commission from the imperial russian navy headquarters, where he worked for the most of his life, from the 1840s until 1900. He earned a considerable fortune, which he spent for charity, and also used for the foundation of the first school of arts (in 1865) and the art gallery (in 1889) in his home town of feodosia. aivazovsky was a member of academies of rome, florence, stuttgart and amsterdam.

The annenkovs belonged to russian cultural elite, and were in the opposition to the tsar's rule. Annenkov's grand uncle, also named pavel annenkov, was among the leading intellectuals of his time, he was the publisher of alexander pushkin. In 1892, annenkov's father was forgiven by the tsar, and young annenkov with his parents returned to their ancestral home in st. Petersburg. There he attended the private gymnasium of stolbtsov, then studied at the law school of st. Petersburg university, but did not graduate. In 1909, annenkov applied to the imperial academy of fine arts, but was not accepted, because his anti-tsar caricatures were published in russian liberal magazines. in the 1900s, annenkov met the famous russian artist ilya repin, who was a neighbor of the annenkovs in the st. Petersburg suburb of kuokkala. Repin's art made a strong impression on young annenkov, albeit he became interested in a more experimental and avant-garde movements. In 1909-1911, in st. Petersburg, he studied at the stieglitz school of art, and attended the drawing class of saveli seidenberg, where his classmate was marc chagall. In 1911 - 1913 annenkov lived in paris and studied painting with symbolist artists maurice denis and felix vallotton. In the summer of 1912 he lived on the atlantic coast of france, in bretagne, there he made a series of drawings of fish and plants for the department of zoology at sorbonne university. In 1913, annenkov participated with his two paintings in the show at 'salon des independents', then he traveled and worked in france and switzerland. Over the course of his artistic development, annenkov absorbed a range of influences, from russian folk-style lubok and cubism of pablo picasso to nabism, expressionism, futurism, dada, and other avant-garde movements, and created his own style called new synthetism. Annenkov in 1914, when the first world war broke, he was back in st. Petersburg, russia. There annenkov worked for art magazines, and took part in several art shows. He made stage design for several stage productions at the theatre of komissarzkhevskoy, and also worked with the director nikolai yevreinov and his theatre krivoe zerkalo (aka..

After the communist revolution of 1917, annenkov followed his democratic and liberal instincts and became associated with non-bolshevik leaders, such as leon trotsky, maxim gorky, and anatoli lunacharsky. in 1918 - 1921, annenkov made several large-scale, experimental and most avant-garde street decorations for mass shows and outdoor performances in st. Petersburg, russia. On may 1, 1920, he staged an outdoor mystery show titled 'liberated labour anthem' for the may day parade. That show started a tradition of grand-scale soviet parades and street shows, for which annenkov made the original designs, working with the group of such artists as dobuzhinsky, maslovsky, kugel, and shchuko. In the fall of 1920, annenkov designed and directed a massive show 'revolutionary takeower of the winter palace' at the palace square in st. Petersburg. At that time, annenkov invested his experimental ideas in such innovative stage productions as 'gaz' by g.Keiser (1920) and 'the mutiny of the machines' by a. Tolstoy (1924) at bolshoi drama theatre (bdt) in st. Petersburg. Annenkov's design for 'the mutiny of the machines' was involving several consecutive stage sets with large-scale moving mechanisms symbolizing the domination of industrial technology over human life. annenkov was among organizers of 'segodnya' publishing house in st. Petersburg. In 1922, he published a book of his original portraits of eighty leading cultural and political figures of russia of that time, such as anna akhmatova, fedor sologub, yevgeni zamyatin, maxim gorky, boris pasternak, and leon trotsky, v.I. Lenin, and aleksandr kerensky among many others. Annenkov's portraits show his mastery of blending several styles for better representation of complex, multi-faceted personalities of his famous sitters. In 1923 annenkov collaborated with kornei chukovsky on the popular children books series, of which "moidodyr" with illustrations by yuri annenkov had over 30 re-printings, and became one of the best known russian books for children. in the summer of 1924, annenkov emigrated from the soviet union together with his wife, actress and ballerina elena (helen) galperi. He took part in the 1924 venice art show, then worked in berlin, germany, and exhibited his art in several shows across europe. Eventually he settled in paris, france. He also made set designs for about 60 stage productions of operas, ballets, and dramas, in collaboration with such directors as george balanchine, léonide massine, bronislava njinska, michael chekhov and serge lifar. He also made numerous portraits of such cultural figures as maurice ravel and jean cocteau, among others. In the 1930s annenkov became involved in film productions. He first collaborated with such film directors as f.W. Murnau and viktor tourjansky. Georges annenkov is best known for his costumes for madame de... (1953), for which he earned an academy award-nomination for best costume design, shared with rosine delamare. Annenkov's costumes and set designers had won him much critical acclaim, especially his costumes for gérard philipe in amants de montparnasse (montparnasse 19), les (1958) and chartreuse de parme, la (1948), among other films. Among his works for television was his lavish design for 'the cherry orchard', a 1959 wd production of the eponymous play by anton chekhov. from 1945 - 1955 annenkov was president of the french syndicate of cinema technicians. Annenkov's witty and bitter-sweet memoirs were published in russian and french and had success among intellectuals in europe. His book 'journal of my meetings' (1966) was translated in several languages, albeit the book was banned in the soviet union, until the collapse of the ussr in 1991.
