  • Catalogue Essay

    The grand subject and gestural painting accentuates the kitsch factor in the present lot. This could be a slightly psychotic version of the common hack-painted tourist souvenir. High-rise on Raushskaya Embankment, evocative of an avant-garde architectural masterpiece, contrasts with the monumentality of its subject by being painted with tempera on cardboard.
