Notes

PROPERTY FROM A PRIVATE COLLECTION
Georgy Ivanovich Gabashvili, who painted under pseudonym Gigo Gabaev, is considered one of the most famous artists of the Republic of Georgia. Regarded as an unsurpassed master of painterly effects and precise drawing techniques, he was the founder of the School of Critical Realism in Georgian art. Educated at the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts, he held his first personal exhibition in 1891 when he was 29 years old. His best works, such as Three Townsmen (1893), Kurd (1890), Georgian Woman with a Tambourine (1893) and many others are now held in the National Georgian Museum, Tbilisi.
