Pyotr Konchalovsky - A Green Wine Glass

Pyotr Konchalovsky - A Green Wine Glass
2K Russia USSR Stamp Issued 1978
Russian Museum, Moscow
This is the second stamp that was issued to commemorate the centennial of the birth of Konchalovsky by the Russian postal authority in 1976.   Unfortunately, the stamps do not contribute to the high quality and breadth of the artist's work.  Konchalovsky was highly regarded and prolific in the Soviet machinery throughout the 1920s and 1930s, completing many landscapes and over 100 portraits of influential Russians.  This is one of five still life works that were produced in 1933.

A major retrospective of the Konchalovsky's work was held at the Russian Museum from March to July 2010.
