A Walk in the Winter
Bill Jones noted in a personal communication to me that he has a love of Russian Impressionism. He noted that he was “blown away” by an exhibition of Soviet Impressionistic works. Therefore, Bill, this work by Valery Badakva is dedicated to you (I do try to listen to my readers!). Parenthetically, my own favourite Russian artwork is A Girl with Peaches (1887) by Valentin Serov, one of the early Russian Impressionists. By the way, he was one of the greatest portraitists in the Russian milieu.
