Description:
Description: * MASHKOV, ILYA (1881-1944) Still Life With Vegetables. Oil on board, 42 by 55 cm. >Executed in the late 1930s or the early 1940s. > Provenance: A gift from Maria Mashkova, the artist's widow, to the prominent Soviet artist Dementy Shmarinov (1909-1999). > Thence by descent. Collection of Alexei Shmarinov, son of the above, Moscow. >Acquired directly from the above by the present owner. Private collection, Europe. > Authenticity of the work has been confirmed by the expert Yu. Rybakova. > The present lot belongs to the series of still lifes which Ilya Mashkov painted at the village of Abramtsevo, where he lived - hardly leaving the place - from the latter half of the 1930s right up until his death in 1944. Still Life with Vegetables is a kind of quintessence of the creative issues and world view that the artist was resolving during his Abramtsevo period, which makes this work stand out among the other he painted over these years, of which there were around seventy. > This picture points particularly to a new understanding by the artist of the essence of its genre as the silent life of things. The avant-garde still lifes of the 1910s and 1920s had been imposing, garish, and intentionally coarse and festive. When Mashkov put behind him, he turned again to real life, to the essential character of objects and nature morte . In Still Life with Vegetables the images are without stridency but nonetheless retain a full-bloodedness and festiveness in the impression they create. He uses highlights of small transparent brushstrokes to reproduce with illusory precision the shine on the sides of the little pumpkin, the cucumber and the jar next to them. At the same time, the radishes, bread and drapery backdrop are painted freely in an agile variety of light, broad strokes. Mashkov painted on plywood, which was highly unusual for a master artist. The lively texture of the plywood seen through the layer of paint reinforces the feeling of "rusticity", raw power and unaffected naturalness about the work. > The history of the work is also worthy of note. Some time after Mashkov's death the house he so loved in Abramtsevo was acquired by the family of the legendary Soviet book illustrator Dementy Shmarinov. The Shmarinovs were on close terms with the artist's widow Maria Mashkova-Danilova, who presented Still Life with Vegetables to them as a gift.

Literature

I.Bolotina, Ilya Mashkov, Moscow: Sovetskii khudozhnik, 1977, p.348, no.500 illustrated in b/w

This delicate still life belongs to Mashkov\’\’s so-called \‘Abramtsevo series\’\’ of small-scale, intimate works he painted towards the end of the 1930s. \‘These are not literal fragments of everyday life\’\’ notes Bolotina in the monograph, \‘…but lightly modernised variations on the classical theme of a still life. They fall into the tradition of \‘museum art\’\’ alongside his works from the 1920s… Mashkov was master of the still life, a recognised genius of this genre\’\’ (quoted in I.Bolotina, Ilya Mashkov, 1977, pp.103-104). A revival of interest in Mashkov\’\’s work from the 1920s and 1930s took place during his 1956 Moscow exhibition in which these later canvases were centre stage, despite the inclusion of a considerable number of his early works, and the show was accompanied by a small volume on his work by Perelman reassessing the artist's late period. The present work is an exceptionally rare, published and beautiful example of a period of Mashkov\’\’s oeuvre more commonly represented in Russian museums.

This charcoal drawing by Ilya Ivanovich Mashkov was created around 1908/09 d the artist was studying in Moscow. A female nude holding a watering can is presented on the front whilst the back view of a male nude is rendered on the verso.

The paper shows faint creasing, the upper corners with smaller traces of previous mounting on the verso. These damages are barely visible. The drawing is matted in a double glazed frame. The work is signed \‘Ilya Mashkov\’\’\’\’ on the recto lower left. The frame shows some abrasions. The framed work measures 82.5 x 59 cm, the sheet measures 57.3 x 33.3 cm.

Ilya Ivanovich Mashkov (1881-1944)
In 1900 Ilya Ivanovich Mashkov attended the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture under Konstantin Korovin and Valentin Serov but was expelled for his artistic free thinking. During his studies he traveled through Western Europe, Turkey and Egypt. Mashkov was one of the leading members of the artists\’\’\’\’ group \‘Jack of Diamonds\’\’\’\’ (Bubnovyj valet), one of the most significant exhibition societies of the early Russian avant-garde. His works reflected the artistic innovations of Paul Cezanne and Henri Matisse, but Mashkov eventually developed his own painting style, drawing on folk art and avant-garde expressionism. In his favorite genre – the still life – the artist managed to achieve a colorful expressiveness, condensing forms, dramatizing color contrasts and exaggerating textures. In addition, Mashkov created powerful nude paintings and drawings that display his talent to represent the human body, as well as landscapes and portraits.
