The artist is Osolodkov
“Portrait of the sailor” was written during the period of study at graduate school of the Academy of Arts. These years are considered the most prosperous in the fate of Osolodkov, since at that time he had a workshop, canvases and colors, he was always full and could be completely surrendered to painting. “Portrait of the sailor” is one of the series of portraits of workers, sailors, movers, coarsely written, more natural, and simply and without excesses. Laconicism and monumentality make the image typical and at the same time heroic.
