More About this Item


Description

Nikolai Gritsuk (Russian,1922-1976), untitled, 1974, watercolor on paper 65 x 52 cm. Provenance: George Costakis Collection. Nikolai Gritsuk was born in the small village of Preobrazhenka in 1922. Seriously injured in the fighting in Austria in 1945, he nonetheless successfully completed his studies at the Fine Art department of the Moscow Textile Institute. He returned to his native Siberia, this time to Novosibirsk, in 1953. Initially, Gritsuk painted from nature but, over time, he became more inspired by the abstract form and this became the basis of his work. His preoccupation with overcoming seclusion stems from his geographical remoteness, combined with his artistic isolation as one of the few abstract painters of the 1960s in the USSR. Provenance: George Costakis Collection
