Abstract: A new approach to the construction of isomonodromy deformations of 2 × 2 Fuchsian systems is presented. The method is based on a combination of the algebrogeometric scheme and RiemannHilbert approach of the theory of integrable systems. For a given number 2g + 1, g ≥ 1, of finite (regular) singularities, the method produces a 2gparameter submanifold of the Fuchsian monodromy data for which the relevant RiemannHilbert problem can be solved in closed form via the BakerAkhiezer function technique. This in turn leads to a 2gparameter family of solutions of the corresponding Schlesinger equations, explicitly described in terms of Riemann theta functions of genus g. In the case g = 1 the solution found coincides with the general elliptic solution of the particular case of the Painlevé VI equation first obtained by N. J. Hitchin [H1].
