The dispute about art

The artist is Yakovlev

The interest of Vasily Yakovlev in the art of the Dutch, Flemings or Italians, the search for lost technology met some criticism even among brothers in a realistic workshop. The artist felt his creative loneliness and was friends with writers, military, scientists. Nevertheless, the picture depicts the conversation of the author precisely with the artists – Vasily Meshkov, Dmitry Tarkhov, Nikolai Chizhov. The picture is diverse-here is an expertly written interior, a luxurious still life, and an undoubted portrait similarity of models, and a self-portrait, and nude … And yet the theme of the canvas is beauty and a woman as the embodiment of her perfection. According to Yakovlev, from the first classes in a field workshop, when he first wrote a naked female model for the first time, he “knew nothing better and does not know in art. The human body is still the crown of my artistic dreams “. In choosing the topic, Vasily Yakovlev far left the principles of socialist realism, but expressed his aesthetic preferences in it.
