    NIKOLAI EFIMOVICH TIMKOV (Russian, 1912-1993)
    Rostov in Winter, 1970-74
    Oil on canvas
    56 x 56 inches (142.2 x 142.2 cm)
    Signed, titled, and dated verso in Cyrillic

    Pushkin Collection, acquired directly from the estate of the artist.

    This extraordinary work was exhibited at several of Timkov's one-man exhibitions, and is considered among his largest and most impressive paintings.

    "From 1964 to 1975 he traveled through the northern Urals, visiting Rostov Veliky, Periyaslavl-Zalesky, Birossogleb, Vladimir, the Pushkin sites in the Pskov region and the ancient Pechora Monastery. The things he saw on these journeys filled his fourth one-man exhibition in 1976 in Leningrad."
    Dr. Alexander Borovsky, The Seasons of Timkov, Pushkin Collection, 1998.
