"The artist in the lap of nature was a theme which was relatively popular in Soviet art, even containing a germ of that favorite Soviet motif, "production": the worker ploughs a field, the milkmaid milks cows, the landscape painter works in the open air. Everything here is unexpectedly exaggerated, even nervous: nature is not giving in, but escaping, slipping away, and this naturally forms the emotional theme of the canvas."
Dr. Alexander Borovsky - Vasili Golubev, Master Russian Expressionist
Estimate: $6,000 - $8,000.
