At the Peter and Paul Fortress

The artist is Pakhomov

The work refers to a series of works “in the sun”, after which Pakhomov almost did not return to painting, concentrating his activities on the graphics. Criticism after the first exhibition of Leningrad artists, which, among others, also showed “at the Peter and Paul Fortress”, pointed out the “formalistic far -fetched approach” of Pakhomov’s things. He really started working in painting with monumental murals, some of which organically passed into his easel paintings. It is the soft and warm “fresco” flavor, a light and “transparent” picturesque letter, an ardent desire to convey the beautiful: admiration for a girl’s grace and youth, the freshness of a sunny day – did not correspond to the principles of socialist realism.
