Victor Letonoff is a painter working from his studio in Lewes, Delaware. Like chiaroscuro artists of the Renaissance era, light is his most important resource. He has been heard to say I dont paint things, I paint light. He works primarily in oil and watercolor, painting still lifes and portraits.

After a 35 year career as a senior Army officer, Letonoff earned a certificate in the four year program at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. During this time, he was awarded the Thouron Award, The Morris Blackburn Prize, The Charles Toppan Prize and The PLastic Club Award.

He attended the Ecole Des Beaux Artes in Paris to hone his figurative painting skills. In addition, he studied with Nelson Shanks at his Philadelphia school, Incaminati.

Letonoff has shown his work in a number of solo exhibitions as well as juried group shows since the late 1990s. His work is also included in several public collections including the New Castle County Court House.
