Shitov gave several landscapes, conceived deeply steeped in a real sense, subtly intellectual contemplation of nature. P. Naumov gave a very modest... but told beautifully and thoughtfully what I wanted. Such natures are produced by real artists... Two works I. Plekhanova find outstanding coloristic talent... All less significant were the works of Chernysheva, clumsily imitating B. Anisfeld, and watercolors Shavrina... M. Yakovlev a good flowers painted in bright, Sunny, directly. For these flowers you could forgive him very bad blue picture, which place soon at the exhibition "St. Petersburg artists"... B. Anisfeld, segrave usually colorful paradoxes A. GAUS presented a smart, expertly written landscapes A. Jawlensky following in the footsteps of the great Gauguin and Cezanne, and finally Muscovites @ldquo;Голубой roses@rdquo; —, all these artists enough undecided, to make more exhibitions @ldquo;зеленой youth@rdquo;".
