Soroka (Vasiliev), G. V. Fishermen, Detail. 1845 - 1849

Detail from "Fishermen" In this exquisitely composed and colored river scene, one feels the spirit of Soroka's mentor, Alexei Venetsianov. Soroka's understanding of light, derived from the teachings and examples of Venetsianov, produced a canvas which virtually exhales the late afternoon air of a windless summer day. (00360)
