This is one of historical-scene artworks of my grandfather- Honoured Artist of Russia
Andrey Gavrilovich Lyssenko (1916-2000).
It named "First Victory"and belongs to event of first great russian victory of World War-II near Moscow(1942).
Subject is that russian warrior-vinner is standing and look after line of captived enemeys. He mind
about how that exselent "millitary-machine" changed in long line of helpless People...
Main person of this painting is brother of grandfathers wife. He really took part in that war fear
as in another battles of W.W-II. He was a driver of tank and accepted war from first till last days.
He came home alive and had lived long life... I remember him fine. Even i keep his warriors acsessories...
One intresting story i want to remember about this paint: one time i met art-collector in my workshop.
That time this painting stayed there so i desided to show it to collector. He was Germam.
So i show, i exsplain what it's about... And when i came to point "line of captived solders"...
that time he wonderly told to me: you know-there was my granddad! Wonder! To granddads met in one
artwork... In oppozitesides of paint... And their grandsons met each other after long time...
THAT TO DRINK COFEE AND TO SPEAK ABOUT ART AND MODERN LIFE! It shows- life is good. Life erase
Now this artwork is available in one of private Moscow museums.
