"A Stop on the Way" by Gennady Pavlovich Sorogin (1930-2004)

  • A masterful genre work which could likely serve the artist as a primery idea for the future large scale topic painting.  This lively pleinair picture features three female figures (woman workers) on the snow waiting for the lorry to be pulled out of the snow to continue their voyage. The silvery colours of a grey winter day add to a dramatic feeling on this work. Size in frame -57x77 cm.  Comes with the certificate of authenticity form Leonid Shishkin Gallery.
