Description: ALEKSANDR GRIGOREVICH BASOV (RUSSIAN 1918-1980), Holiday in Artek, 1951, oil on unstretched canvas, 39 1/2 x 73 1/2 in ( 100 1/2 x 187 cm), inscribed and dated on verso.

LOT NOTES
Basov was born in Elma, Vologda pr., 1918. He studied at Ryazan Art College until 1948. Basov taught at intermediate school 1947-57. This particular painting represents very well the spirit of the Soviet epoch`s enthusiasm and optimism about future. It depicts the celebratory dance performance in Artek, a famed children`s camp in Crimea, which would host children from various Soviet Republics and it was considered a big privilege to attend it. The dance is the traditional Ukrainian one, which is also accompanied by the musicians playing a traditional Ukrainian instrument - bandura. Cypress trees and the Black Sea in the background reconfirm the fact that the depicted scene takes place in Crimea.
