Four Faces by Alexandre Sacha Putov
Alexandre Putov (1940-2008) was a Russian expressionist painter who spent his last decades in Paris where he was associated with the Art Cloche group. Putov’s influences included Van Gogh, Chagall and Kandinski. We feel that Putov’s figures are much stronger than his landscapes and cityscapes (some of which are muddy). This painting of four figures is characterized by the contrast between the blue background and the gold and reds of the bodies of the figures. In this rendering Putov uses white rather than his normal black to trace outlines of his figures and faces. Acrylic on paper. Paris. 1990's.
