Ivan Alekseyevich Bunin (1870-1953), the first laureate among Russian writers, was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1933 for 'his strict mastery in developing the traditions of Russian classical prose.' According to the classic himself, such recognition was primarily linked to his novel 'Life of Arseniev'. The award ceremony took place on December 10, 1933, in the Stockholm Concert Hall. In his Nobel speech, which the writer worked on for a long time, Bunin noted that the prize was awarded for the first time to a writer in exile. King Gustaf V of Sweden presented the Nobel medal and diploma to the laureate. The writer received a check for 170,331 Swedish kronor (715,000 francs). Ivan Alekseyevich donated part of the prize to those in need.
