Fedor Antonov, Russian Impressionist

AntonovEveryone has heard about the French Impressionists, but Russian Impressionists, working during the Soviet era, from the 1930s to the 1980s, produced some of the most evocative images in twentieth century art. Largely hidden from the West, as was much Russian art when the Communists were in control, the work of these artists deserves the wider audience that it is now receiving. This painting is classical impressionism: capturing a moment in broad strokes, transporting the viewer to a very specific time and place.
