    PROPERTY OF A PRIVATE NEW YORK STATE FAMILY COLLECTION

    VERA ROCKLINE (French/Russian, 1896-1934)

    Portrait of a Woman
    Oil on canvas
    21-1/2 x 18 inches (54.6 x 45.7 cm)
    Signed lower right: Vera Rockline
    Painting is in original frame. PROVENANCE:
    Purchased from the artist.

    Vera Rockline was born in Moscow in 1896 to a French mother and Russian father. She was a student of Neo-Impressionist Il'ia Mashkov and Cubist Alexandra Exter. In 1921, she arrived in Paris, and in 1922, she exhibited at the Salon d'Automne and the Salon des Tuileries. Influenced by her teacher Alexandra Exter, Rockline's early works are more Cubist in style but with a color palette that more closely resembles Cézanne. In her later Post-Impressionist works, as seen in this canvas, she incorporated both Neo-Impressionist and Cubist styles by using bold brush strokes and rich colors. Rockline's works were almost exclusively nudes, with the exception of a few portraits, and Cubist compositions. Tragically, her life was cut short at the age of 38.

    ВЕРА РОХЛИНА РОДИЛАСЬ В МОСКВЕ В 1896 ГОДУ ОТ РУССКОГО ОТЦА И ФРАНЦУЗСКОЙ МАТЕРИ. ОНА БЫЛА УЧЕНИЦЕЙ НЕОИМПРЕССИОНИСТА ИЛЬИ МАШКОВА И КУБИСТА АЛЕКСАНДРЫ ЭКСТЕР. В 1921 ГОДУ ОНА ПРИБЫЛА В ПАРИЖ, А В УЖЕ 1922 ГОДУ СТАЛА ВЫСТАВЛЯТЬ СВОИ РАБОТЫ В ОСЕННЕМ САЛОНЕ И В САЛОНЕ ТЮИЛЬРИ. РАННИЕ РАБОТЫ РОХЛИНОЙ, ПОД ВЛИЯНИЕМ АЛЕКСАНДРЫ ЭКСТЕР, ПО СТИЛЮ ЯВЛЯЮТСЯ КУБИСТСКИМИ, А ПО ЦВЕТОВОЙ ГАММЕ БОЛЬШЕ НАПОМИНАЮТ СЕЗАННА. В СВОИХ БОЛЕЕ ПОЗДНИХ ПОСТИМПРЕССИОНИСТСКИХ РАБОТАХ, КАК ВИДНО НА ЭТОМ ПОЛОТНЕ, ОНА, С ПОМОЩЬЮ ОТЧЁТЛИВЫХ МАЗКОВ КИСТИ И ГУСТЫХ ТОНОВ, СМЕШИВАЕТ ОБА СТИЛЯ: НЕОИМПРЕССИОНИСТСКИЙ И КУБИСТСКИЙ. РАБОТЫ РОХЛИНОЙ - ЭТО ПОЧТИ ИСКЛЮЧИТЕЛЬНО ОБНАЖЁННЫЕ НАТУРЫ, ЕСЛИ НЕ СЧИТАТЬ НЕСКОЛЬКИХ ПОРТРЕТОВ И КУБИСТСКИХ КОМПОЗИЦИЙ. ЕЁ ЖИЗНЬ БЫЛА ТРАГИЧЕСКИ ПРЕРВАНА В ВОЗРАСТЕ 38 ЛЕТ.
