Korzukhin, A. I.

Birds' Enemies


Oil on canvas. 52,5 x 71

In the final years of his life Korzukhin strove to portray the brighter aspects of life, He unfolds the action under the open skies. The young fowlers' intentions are serious when they set off to catch birds, but for the artist this is a game. He delights in the sunshine and the noise of a warm summer's day and the simple-minded seriousness of the "hunters" who are out to get some birds for their woven cages. Play and Passion in Russian Fine Art. St-Petersburg. 1999. P. 28.
