Product description:A WWII-era Soviet surgeon, Dr. Panova, after Oreshnikov, a socialist-realist painter who was well-known in the former USSR in the fifties and early sixties...who then, so it seems, disappeared from official art catalogues and books. My version is one of my best portraits..almost strictly monochrome but actually full of subtle colors and modeling. The image is of a strong character whose talent is in his hands, the skilled surgeon who, undeterred by the horrors of war, nevertheless does his work to save lives. It is noteworthy that the Leningrad School of Painting kept classical Italian and renaissance era techniques alive when modernism was sweeping Europe. Many current realist atelier schools owe their inspiration to graduates of this school who went on to become faculty. But Oreshnikov had more poetry in his portraits than most other soviet realists and was probably the reason for his removal from official status. This is one of my older paintings made, I believe, in 1978.
