Lots of 24-го curator of the auction "twenty-first century. Contemporary Russian art" presented in the exhibition online-выставки AI.

Dear participants and spectators of the auction AI! No monitor and no modern gadget ever authentic will not give works of art! Color, texture, not to mention the aura of a particular work, the impression from the meeting with her, the monitor is not subject. Good thing he can do at least wishy-washy, and not very good, on the contrary, to embellish (the last one we have, but it is fair to say it's worth). In addition, each person sees and feels by-своему. So come see all the work with my own eyes we have on Gorokhovsky, 7 (only need to call and make an appointment).

Maria Vasilievna YAKUNCHIKOVA (1870-1902)

"Creativity yakunchikovoy-Вебер not only anticipated the development of art Nouveau in the face of St. Petersburg "World of art" and symbolism Moscow, Saratov with a deep accent, "Blue roses", but also initiated innovative, at the European level, painting our "Amazons" — artists of the Russian avant-garde" (

ERZYA Stepan Dmitrievich (1876-1959)
Female head

Another top-лот directory — sculpture "Female head" Stepan Dmitrievich Erzya, created, probably in 1927-1950 years when the artist lived in Argentina, indicatedlabel Galería Arroyo (Buenos-Айрес). Arizu — amazingly talented sculptor — during his lifetime was called "the Russian Rodin".

After solo exhibitions in the gallery "Charpentier" and the Palace of fine arts, earned rave reviews in the press, has again received recognition. In 1927 he accepted the offer to hold an exhibition in Montevideo, went to Latin America. However, not having a Uruguayan visa, settled in Argentina.

tree Erzya began working in the mid 1920-х in Baku. In Argentina, for their work used primarily extremely hard varieties of tropical trees — quebracho (South quebracho) and Algarrobo, which are processed with the help of specially invented the pneumatic machine. Perhaps these rocks and created our sculpture.

Work in the next section — creation of Soviet artists — integrates only the period of creation. Each of these authors went its own way.

CHRISTMAS Konstantin (1906-1997)
Farmer. 1930-е

"the Most interesting and rich layers that feed a lifetime, was the period associated with our young hope. ...When there was Casimir", — wrote Konstantin Ivanovich Rozhdestvensky, the author of the composition "Peasant" (1930-е). The work included in the "Peasant cycle" — series, inspired by images of poststreptococcal "Peasant cycle" of Malevich. In this series of Christmas there are several separate themed sections — figures of peasant women, bearded men, family in the field, sheaves, etc. Researchers of creativity of the artist is creating this cycle "sometimes the highest achievements of the Nativity in painting". Sometimes he uses the plot, composite or plastic solution, seen Malevich, however, reinvents it, giving your belongings a special feeling, color and atmosphere drawn from your own experiences. "Is Grand and luminous Siberian sunsets@the semicolon is a red Siberian peasants-крестьяне... this Golden domes of the churches against the dense Siberian forests", — described origins of his inspiration, the artist. About Christmas read the article headings "the Artist weeks".

PROSHKIN, Victor N. (1906-1983)
portrait of a man. 1939

the Author of "man's portrait" (1939) Viktor Proshkin he studied at the Petrograd (Leningrad) higher art the — VHUTEINe (1924-1930) at K. S. Petrov-Водкина and A. E. Karev. He mainly painted landscapes, and it is called the representative of the Leningrad school landscape. However, his work is not limited to landscapes not native, but from his youth to the end of the days of the beloved city, he wrote still lifes, a variety of multi-figure genre compositions, worked as a book artist and, of course, he painted portraits, which in his creative heritage make up a significant part. Our portrait of a young man created two years before the war, the face with large features reflects the strong nature of the model combined with the obvious romanticism of her. The artist, as in many of his portraits, uses smooth, devoid of detail, background, concentrating the viewer's attention on the way to thoughtful young men.

SHESTOPALOV Nikolay Ivanovich (1875-1954)
Pushkin and Mickiewicz. Neva Embankment. 1946

the Composition "Pushkin and Mickiewicz. The Neva river embankment" (1946) Nicholas I. Shestopalova continues our story. "Nikolay Shestopalov has gained fame and recognition in the 1900-1920-е years — we read in the press-релизе personal exhibition of the artist organized in the state in 2016. — before the revolution, participated in exhibitions Association “World of art” and actively worked in the field of satirical graphics. After the revolution, in 1920-е years he turned to historical-революционному genre and he exposed his works at all exhibitions of the Association of artists of revolutionary Russia (AHRR) since its inception.

Official art history strictly defined Nicholas Shestopalovu place in the history of Soviet art, calling it a well-known Illustrator, author of sketches for the Soviet pre-war postcards glorifying heroic work. Art historians seemed to have forgotten about the training of the artist in Munich, about his participation in the exhibitions "World of art", in Russian art of the second decade of the twentieth century" ( Our job obviously belongs to a series of paintings and graphic works devoted to the life and works of A. S. Pushkin and M. Y. Lermontov, which appeared in the artist in 1940-50-е years, said the expert. Shestopalov "has come a long creative path from academic art, symbolism to create paintings on themes of Russian revolutionary movements and modern history. And was undeservedly forgotten, like many artists who, for one reason or another did not become the flagships of Soviet art, but remained faithful to the fine ideals of the past" ( And it is this fidelity to the visual and cultural ideals of the past reflects written in postwar Leningrad painting "Pushkin and Mickiewicz. Neva Embankment".

VECHTOMOV, Nikolai E. (1923-2007)
Night flying. 1992

Completes a section of works of the sixties bright pink-черный sheet in mixed media "Night flight" (1992) Nicholas Evgenyevich Vechtomova. Critic and art critic Sergey Kuskov wrote about the meaning and significance of a sense of mission in the works Vechtomova: "...the SPACE itself is all the artist's works the dominant factor and sensemaking the beginning. It even finds there the qualities and properties of energy-dense living environment, active almost like a living thing. Space overrides or outweighs, in its significance all the possible particular beings, in General, all the phenomena and forms within it arising. However, even SPACE is also in some respects subject to their overcoming. So, overcoming a three-dimensional-измеримого, empirical cash space occurs through embodied here figuratively and Platonic sense of mission, transcending the earthly spirit of gravity or the relevant gravity, overcoming the oppression of distances or purely quantitative extent, which is not spiritual, and most material associated form of life space. This bare mechanical lengths of space, as prisoner of gravity, opposed to the rapidly spreading view into the interior space of attraction is notthe land already, and distances, depths, heights, with their penetrating and pervasive calling to fly glow. The overcoming of the oppression of three dimensions, weights and gravity also contribute to frequent here a variety of motives floating, as if weightless objects, regardless of their subject content, but somehow carrying a sense of mission" (

Since 1977 lives in Paris, works, exposed, hanging in the world's best museums, including the Centre Pompidou, being sold at auction. Everywhere except in his country. Read about it to AI, and note that "in Russia the exhibition of the artist is not spoiled and acquaintance with the works Hot today, in fact, you can start anew. The doubly interesting.

And-моему, it's the wrong thing to do in front of this acquaintance, — is in advance to read a lot of criticism and art criticism of early interpretations of creativity Hot. Otherwise then all will haunt the horror, the sintered mass and “absolute death”, mixed according to the recipes of analytical art. Hot all-таки not Filonov, a follower of which it is considered, and rightly so. His work is completely independent and recognizable. Yes, his stories are often anthropomorphic plexus, piles of creatures with transparent skin. But it is rather a stylistic device to convey his own philosophical ideas. In short, don't listen to anybody, read the Hot sheet, where everything can be dealt with without outside help".

Traditionally, the final section of the directory — of the work contemporary authors.
