1970 Russian Portrait,' Girl in a Checked Dress' A.Solodovnikov
A fabulous, 1970's portrait of a girl with long bunches and a monochrome blouse with a Peter Pan collar by Russian artist A.P. Solodovnikov (1928 - 2017). The soft light is such a joy as it falls across her face and coral lips. The thick, blocked brush strokes of her blouse are cubist in form. Sigh.

Acquired from the personal collection of the artist.
