Overview of the painting :

Chrysanthemums – Igor Emmanuilovich Grabar. Canvas, tempera, pastel. 98 x 98 cm

   AND. Uh. Grabar is a universal figure in Russian art culture: artist, art historian, teacher, restorer, museum and public figure. From 1913 to 1925 he was the director of the Tretyakov Gallery, created a new exposition in the museum, scientifically sound and with a carefully thought-out concept, which became a kind of model for subsequent museum re-expositions.

   Grabar took the searches of the French masters, actively using the techniques of divisionalism – separate application of colors on the canvas. “Chrysanthemums” is the most spectacular still life of the artist.
