VI Shukhaiev, like his close friend and colleague, Alexander Yakovlev, is the most consistent representative of the direction of neo-classicism in Russian art. He has worked and achieved success in many kinds of art, but is primarily known as a brilliant draftsman. In particular, expressive of his drawings sanguine. In seeking to chart its similarities with the Studies of old masters, Shukhaiev often deliberately left visible the process work. Figure tinkering with his finger, repeating several times the contours, wiping the failed line, sharpening on the leaf surface sanguine rod, he created the impression of "rough figure", although the majority of his graphic works are fully completed, machine-nature. Individual style of the artist, established in 1910's, had changed little throughout life, which complicates the dating of his drawings. Relatively easy to date back only the work of the Tbilisi late period of creativity, which, unlike the sheet 1910-x - 1930, Shukhaiev sought to compositional completeness: more careful attention to detail, filling the entire surface of the sheet. An important problem is the differentiation nepodpisnyh work Yakovlev and Shuhaeva, also mostly graphics.
