    • Vassili Yakovlevich (Vasily) Sitnikov (Russian, 1915-1987) Monastery in Winter, 1974-75
      Sep. 28, 2023

      Vassili Yakovlevich (Vasily) Sitnikov (Russian, 1915-1987) Monastery in Winter, 1974-75

      Est: $50,000 - $70,000

      Vassili Yakovlevich (Vasily) Sitnikov (Russian, 1915-1987) Monastery in Winter, 1974-75 oil on canvas signed in Cyrillic and dated (lower left); signed in Cyrillic (lower right); signed in Cyrillic and dated (verso) 48 x 32 inches. Property from the Collection of George C. Kaiser, Milwaukee, Wisconsin Lot Essay: The theme of monasteries in snow would be one that Soviet Nonconformist artist Vassili Yakovlevich (Vasily) Sitnikov (1915-1987) would return to often and which proved to be particularly popular. This example, from 1974, with the masterly application of a limited color palette of whites, blues, and grays, with a judicious use of pale yellow and red, define the very Russian subject, with the monastery’s onion domes and scattered citizens in the foreground, including a knot of children, dressed in twentieth-century winter gear. The flat treatment of the scene, smoothing out the perspective of the monastery to less of a building and more of a wall, and, with the cut-out nature of the figures, lends the impression of a stage set, with the entirety of the scene obfuscated through the fastidiously and beautifully applied snowflake curtain. The flatness and the scale of monastery to the inhabitants in the foreground thematically would have the potential of being imposing, a cold and unforgiving environment in the snow; yet, Sitnikov’s treatment actually relays the opposite through his comforting pale, cool, lustrous tones and the complete ease through which his inhabitants amble through the snow: a parent and child hand-in-hand, neighbors stopping for a chat. The monastery becomes an ideal—an atmospheric, traditional Russian environment peopled by Russians at peace. Sitnikov’s wistful treatment is perhaps not surprising given his tumultuous life and relation to the Soviet government. In 1934, Stalin defined his expectations for Soviet art, Social Realism—a propagandistic style extoling the virtues of humble Russians depicted in warm, glowing tones—of Stalin walking through a sun-drenched meadow, surrounded by adoring children. Meanwhile, modern, more avant-garde styles such as abstraction were suspect and increasingly criminal. Sitnikov was arrested in 1941 and was later institutionalized in a mental hospital. Later in his life, once released and, amid socio-political shifts like the Thaw that permitted a greater variety of artistic expression, Sitnikov fulfilled a life-long interest in teaching, while also propagating his style as well as his own personal mythology. His wife, Lidia Krokhina, was a student of his, and she also signed this painting as a collaborator. A year after this work’s completion, in 1975, Sitnikov would leave Russia for Austria for five years, before emigrating to the United States in 1980, living in New York for the remainder of his life. It is through such scenes as this that encapsulate his oeuvre—of the intersection of Russian tradition and modern painting.

Манера его преподавания сильно отличалась от академической. Художник-нонконформист Вячеслав Петров- Гладких писал в своих воспоминаниях об уроках : “Система упражнений была весьма проста. Мы приходили и начинали писать сухой кистью, сначала ультрамарином по ватману фигурку ( мы,признаться, не понимали, что от нас требуется), он тут на наших глазах все переделывал и отправлял нас домой. Дома мы снова продолжали все портить, затем приходили к нему, и он снова исправлял на наших глазах. Это было обучение методом показа. Никакой теории, кроме виртуозного мата в наш адрес, никогда не было.”(Василий Ситников и его школа, стр. 32). Виртуозный мастер, Cитников любил работать сухой кистью по холсту или бумаге, а затем прорабатывал поверхность так, что краски просвечивались одна сквозь другую.

      Est: $5,000 - $6,000

      VASILY SITNIKOV (RUSSIAN 1915-1987), 1982, oil on canvas, Signed lower left. 18 inches x 36 inches. Marked and dated on the verso. Vassili Yakovlevich (Vasily) Sitnikov (1915 - 1987) was active/lived in New York / Russian Federation. Vassili Sitnikov is known for Russian city scene, nude figure, buildings painting, teaching, animation. Sitnikov Vasily Yakovlevich was born in Novo-Rakitino Settlement of Tambov Province on August 19 (September 1), 1915 into a family of peasants that moved to Moscow in 1921. In 1933 he studied in Moscow Ship Mechanics School dreaming to sail to faraway lands; there he took to making models of sailing vessels. Vasily Yakovlevich Sitnikov born 1915, and my pupil Vladimir Titov. Vasily Sitnikov's place in the post-war Soviet Nonconformist canon is well established throughout Russia and the world. He was institutionalized by Soviet authorities and placed in a mental hospital in the 1940s, barely escaping execution in Kazan. After his release, Sitnikov's paintings reflected his rejuvenated lust for life, celebrating humanism and beauty in all its forms. Some of his favorite subjects were Russian monasteries with their cool blue cupolas and solid white walls seen in this painting. He emigrated to Austria in 1975 and then to the US. According to Sitnikov, "I had about 30 or 40 reasons to immigrate, but the main hope was to prove myself. To see if I could compete with the masters of Europe and America." In 2002 he was the subject of the documentary film "VASYA". Original condition untouched. Fresh to the market. Surface spots.
