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).

KLEVER Julius Yulievich (1850-1924) a Winter motif. 1880
dubbed Canvas, oil. 111,5 × 83,4

Russian art the end of the XIX — early twentieth century represents the canvas "Winter motif" (1880) Julius Yul'evich Clover, written perhaps in Germany, where the artist traveled in 1880-м to study landscape painting. "I write all sorts of landscapes, but-настоящему know a sunset in its different moments and gnarled trees, bent by bad weather and winds", — the artist wrote ( By the early 1880-х years, i.e. at the time of writing our "Winter motif" Clover is well established as an artist, finally gained their original creative vision and their own language. His landscapes can be rightfully attributed to the style of "romanticism", which was developed in Europe in the early nineteenth century as opposed to classicism and the Enlightenment. Romanticism in Russian painting — is primarily landscape, and not so much the image of nature as such, as the portrait area, with its own mood and character. In addition, for romantic landscapes characterized by a certain theatricality and dramatization of space, love the mysterious night lighting, the use of light (color) effects.

All this fully applies to the landscapes of Julius Yul'evich Clover in General, and to our "Winter melody." Despite the almost photographic realism, they often depict places invented that do not exist in reality. Clover and did not aspire to certainty — mainly it was to achieve the maximum expression of the picture. Here — is often fragmented asymmetrical type of composition, the view from the inside, which creates a sense of involvement and belonging to the majestic landscapes — untouched snow, impassable forest thickets, which likes to portray the artist. This participation of the eternal virgin nature set up the audience for a special lyrical mood and what was sought in the age of romanticism.

Love for dramatic effects in the many landscapes of the Clover is evident in his preference for early morning (sunset), almost night-lighting, careful study of the shades of the sky, reflections of light and colour reflexes in the water or on snow as well as the attention to silhouette, the contour, the individual color spots. (Read on the artist on AI: "artist of the week: Julius Klever".)

RUBLEV Georgy Iosifovich (1902-1975) Landscape with trees and figure. 1920-е
Paper, pencil. 25 × 35

1920-ми years, started creativeheyday Georgi Iosifovich Rublev dated pencil drawing "Landscape with trees and figure." Personal exhibition held in the Tretyakov gallery in 2002-м, the centenary of the artist, opened a public unfamiliar face known in Soviet times by the author. "Georgi Iosifovich Rublev — character with unique avant-garde biography. A successful Soviet artist, lived until 1975. Stalinist muralist, wrote a huge ceiling in the style of Tiepolo with rosy happy Soviet people in the cloudless sky. And — is a very clever man — almost never showed his paintings. Except for two cases: in 1944, a small exhibition in the Union of architects (in military time, criticism was not too noticeable) and in 1969 the big man-to-man when it was shown almost all. But 1969 — is not current time, then the status of Stalinist monumental, the artist is not allowed to appreciate the avant-garde “for myself”, especially at that time have opened Falk and Filonov, not the second tier. Then, when it was opened. <...>

Perhaps the only difference from the other classics that have flourished in the thirties. All the categories of his poetics are shifted with respect to the values of the traditional avant-garde. He has no categories of truth, messianism, the opening of the first principles of the universe, he has no aspirations or calling to him, he has a sense of absurdity of being established" (

"Artist and writer Konstantin Sutyagin wrote that the paintings of the initial period of creativity, Rublev marked "energy of naïve art, its simplicity and power, disarming the viewer." But by the end of 1930-х years "Rublev turned off the soul, creativity," left "some brains" — said so in the discussion of his paintings in 1944-м year A. A. Fedorov-Давыдов" ( The last statement has become fashionable to quote in articles and even posts about the artist in our time — time impetuous and not always truthful praise of contemporaries, and citation may be questionable, but an abusive criticism of a bygone authors. But that's only the new owners Rublev heritage that-то not in a hurry to part with him, obviously agreeing that "the classic artists-авангардистам Rublev concerns about harms to Mayakovsky" (

In the work Labasa — complex, multifaceted, very different — professionals, Amateurs and connoisseurs together to highlight the theme, where his power is absolute: the movement — everything that moves on land, water and air. "...The movement for the artist means first of all moving into a different space, even if it's not an airplane, but only a winch, carrying the painter to the top, but still tear it from the ground. We can say that the artist "wrote gravity" long before this word has literally walked in our everyday life..." (Yuri Molok, "...He's not sketching in the details of the airship or locomotive, he wrote the sense of wonder, speed, flight. The writing is not “the car”, but like its human consequences. And for that he needs the finestpainting, creating the impression full of light and color dynamic space, embracing, lifting everything inside it, — people, objects, vehicles and, it seems, the earth itself" (A.

"What-то is symbolic in these small sketchbook next to the signature of no —, replied Victor Pivovarov. — Is a special bonus for collectors is that each plate is its own way unique.

Paper, tempera. 29,3 × 38,9 (light)

Tempera on paper in the author's style of kinetic mannerism says "Fragmentation No. 1" (1978) from the series "Fragmentation" Alexander Yefimovich Grigoriev. Mechanistic fragmentation emphasizes the elegance of a stylized butterfly. The work is written 6 years after the release Grigorieva from the group of Russian kinetists "Movement" led by Lev Nusberg; five years of participation in the group (1967-1972) was the most interesting period in the artist's life and certainly influenced his future work.

"We were friends, shared everything and looked into each other's work. Had an interesting life, although wewere all alone. Nothing like no one else did... Until we have reached fragmentary information about the Western kinetic art — and we accepted Russian equivalent of the term "Movement"" (interview with Francisco Infante, member of the "Movement"). "Kinetische longed to overcome the real art of aesthetic objects and static structures. Constructivists 20-х years understood the movement not only as a mechanical movement, but also as a form of perception of time and space, the movement as a universal position. Hence thesis Nusberg, confirmed the entire group: “I want to work with electromagnetic fields, with glowing and pulsating concentrations in space, with various movements of flows of gases and liquids, mirrors and optical effects, with changes of heat and smells ... and, of course, music.” In the text of the program in 1965 under the title “What is kinetic art?” Nusberg determines the kinetic of the synthesis: "...we require the use of all opportunities and resources, both technical and aesthetic, physical and chemical phenomena, all arts, all processes and forms of perception, as well as the involvement of the mental reactions and the influence of various sensory capabilities of a human, as a means of artistic expression"" ( Grigoriev joined the group in 1967 (left the group in 1972-м) and managed to participate in several of her projects. To the same period belong his first works in the style of abstract-геометрической minimalist painting and kinetic spatial objects (

acrylic on Canvas. 54,6 × 45

Fun walks "the Drummer" (2013) Oleg Vladimirovich Langa. "Free and independent, he was not trying to fit into mainstream, to meet someone-то expectations. His signature style, which he was correct at every step of the way, mixed with the appeal to urban folklore, combines primitive expressionism, minimalism" ( Oleg lang — artist "Museum", "dozens of his canvases are in the permanent collections of many Russian museums, including the Tretyakov gallery and the Russian Museum, and were shown in solo exhibitions" (

"From lang items tend to be irrelevant, so at home, and face, and large pieces United by a common still-life approach. Where originates this setting? In the Moscow painting ten years of the last century — artists “Jack of diamonds”. According to their contemporaries, the critic Sergei Makovsky, “the jacks” first “in landscape, and in the face of a man, and nakedness saw the interaction of the painted trekhmernoi. The portrait is likened to the still life and Vice versa... Topographic fidelity to nature, and abstraction, generalization"" (

"Kind of developing the traditions of good old avant-garde, Oleg lang has developed his own, individual style in which expressionist stylecombines abstract and figurative elements... <...> Painting of Langa, despite the conventionality of its language, is not directed to metaphysics, and to real life. His compositions are remarkable for their overwhelming freedom, a clever play of textures, intense color spots, independent of spatial-образующая line. Metaphors unexpected, as the original rhymes. Healthy creative fun combined with tragedy. Creativity and the whimsical decisions invariably surprised, and-за "chaos thickets" scenic instrumentation emerges something profound, inexplicable, infinite" (
