Portrait of a boy in painted shirt, after Ilya Mashkov, 2007
The work is an appropriation of the painting made by Ilya Mashkov in 1909. Mashkov created portraits, infusing them with the emotionality of the Fauvist colors. He defined his style as “picturesque itself,” drawing inspiration from Russian folk art, particularly Zhostov’s painting on trays.
