    Ilya Ivanovich Mashkov, a founder of the 'Jack of Diamonds' group, a groundbreaking organization of Russian artists, was a master of avant-garde Russian art. In his Still Life with Plant and Fruit one can see his mastery of the palette with thick paint and vivid color; this work is the essence of Mashkov. Never before offered at auction and from a private collection, this picture is emblematic of his work. Mashkov studied under Konstantin Korovin and Valentin Serov but quickly developed his own style and manner with remarkable results. He traveled the world and brought his talent back to Russia to teach others in Moscow.

    Still Life with Plant and Fruit
    has been examined by University College, London experts and has undergone a battery of testing including ultraviolet, infrared and chemical analysis to determine the structure and technique of the painting. The work, including the signature, has been found to be authentic in every manner. Copies of this report will be made available upon request. The painting also has a letter of authenticity from noted art expert Jean Chauvelin.
