This oil painting on canvas was painted by the highly accomplished Russian artist, I. Gerasimov. His use of form and pastel hues, along with heavier paint seen in the man's white hair to create fullness, and the lined face of the gentlemen give the impression of a content and wise person. The creases of the clothing are beautifully executed to give a draped appearance, and his woven basket is finely painted. The background surfaces and steps have great depth and texture. He signs his painting I. Gerassimoff. Date on canvas: 1950 – Size: 37 ¼" x 28"
