The artist is Ostroumova -Labedev
In Koktebel, where Ostroumova-Lebedeva came more than once, she portraited many inhabitants of the “summer family” Voloshin. Maximilian Aleksandrovich himself wrote several times – the center of attraction for those who visited his hospitable house of creative people. In the 1927 portrait, the poet is “absent” in this world of communication, but also not deepened into himself. Some veil of “other knowledge” as if covering his face. Tamara Chudinovskaya.
