Painting requires a complete self-denial, but you are too fond of life. "
Giorgio de Kirko.


  Some times ago i got an idea to visit far and deep places of russia. Final point of a trip was an old monastery. But until I reached the goal, I saw a lot of interesting...
 1. Highway. North direction. Usual day. There're no too much cars on a road... It's joy...

 2. Old province Russian town Petrovsk (town of Peter)... Quite province life i saw here... Fine place... But!!! Tere're many art galeries there!!! Intresting!!!
 3. After Petrovsk i found myself on country road... I drived, drived... But where am i drive to...- i asked my self...

 4. Miles of fields and north forests... trees of not high size.... No people around...

 5. Losed memory about civilization...

 5. Old white church. Orthodoxy of course. Here's famous Holy Place. By the way- no gas her, its too far place... People get hot from trees...

 6. I continiue to drive... Far... far...far... After time i saw monastery on a top of a hill... Far away...
It was very popular monastery. Becouse of it comunists-atheists destroyed it all... Now monastery on renewal. Some moncs lived there... There i felt taste of 15th century- the church is heated by the stove .... This wonderful scent of the oven, so familiar from childhood ....

 7. After i found unknown lake... Very big and very nice... I never heared about it.... I wanted to ask people... but i couldn't found them around...

8. This is very comon view of Russian country. Very tyoical houses, caled "Izba"... I metlittle of people- mostly of old age... Their clothes was very clean and careful... but looks like from folk russian tales... Its not bad, its good, i think it must be... Real life, freedom, ethnos... good...

I hope, everyone viewer'll get enjoy nd art impressions as i got this trip!

Who exactly do you want to be in art? How exactly do you want to be in art? How do you want to stay in art? These questions help to discard all unnecessary fashion trends and to seek to own, personal purpose...

Artist Anatoly Nasedkin was born in Novgorod (Rus) in 1924. Date of death unknown. After his family replaced in Harkov (Ukr). 
Nasedkin took part in world War-II battales. After war he studied in Harkov Academy of Fine Arts in Workshop by Dergus and Svetlichny.
One of brightly features of Nasedkin art is exstraordinary feeling of drawing, anathomy, shades, dynamick and development of brush strokes. He tried himself in book-illustration art, in oil studies, landscapes, graphics, historical scene paintings... All- lucky! Becourse "house of his art" stood on sturdy base- perfect drawing and fine collor vision and feeling- all it consists his personal tallent. 
Nasedkin paintings are very laconic, dynamic and emotional. It based on play of contrasts of shades, cold-warm colors,  variety of rhythms, lines, strokes and their combinations. Paintings by Nasedkin radiate life, the joy, the desire of creativity. What a pity- Anatoly Nasedkin is very high class master of art, but not so wellknown as he must be. Man who devoted all his life to art...

Ryabushkin... Very... very Russian artist. He felt life of Russia and people very sensitively. I can't tell better and realy- he loved his Motherland. Maybe it's heard rather loudly, but it's better word here. Unlike artists, named "Peredvizhniks", Ryabushkin painted life of Russia in light and bright colors, he showed light sides of life. Of usual life of different kinds of people. As person he was very quiet and modest man. Ryabushkin loved painting, but not honor and PR.
Maybe because of it he is great and famous, but not wellknown. His artworks available in general museums of Russia as Moscow Tretyakov Gallery  and Russian Museum of St. Petersburg.
Intresting feature of his life: When he graduated from Moscow Academy of Fine Arts with exelent mark, he was awarded a journey to Europe. But Ryabushkin  refused to go. He preferred to travel the ancient  towns of Russia.  These little, quite  and unknown towns, shapes of them lived in Ryabushkin Arts. It was his real mission.

 Chistyakov- Academic of Fine Arts. Teacher of Realism Painting. His pupils were such famous artists as Repin, Serov, Surikov, Vrubel  and more other...

"Fine, but offline"- often told Chistyakov about "realistic to death" art.
"Real, right art isn't deathly copy of nature. Art is product of soul, man's spirit.
Art is those sides of human soul what rise him up under all things of world.
Art must show best inner features of human and of space."

He liked hard critic of "empty-paintings". He constantly reminded that painting isn't "estetic joke".
Painting wants for committed and for everytime work.
