Dec 21st, 2018 : Ark

The full name is, "Ark. Of the twentieth century." Yes, two sentences.
It was painted by Zykov Gennady Mikhailovich (1931~2013) of Moldova.
I like it.



I like a lot of his extensive body of work.



He was a loyal Soviet citizen but some of his works depict the worst side of the Soviet Regime, but are not blatantly labeled.
Some of his paintings I've seen around the net do not appear on the official online archive in Russia.



I read some of his paintings had been "recalled". It didn't say by whom or for what reason, but I have some guesses.
If he hadn't become a notable art teacher/public cultural figure...

He cuts right to the chase, doesn't he?

Yes, better than the "official archive" in Russia.
