Vladimir Aleksandrov. A Portrait of My Father. 2000

A Portrait of my Father

Vladimir Aleksandrov



Ever since I first saw this work, it’s been one of my favourite paintings. Mr Aleksandrov captures not only his father’s experience, but, also that of the entire Russian people. Look at the eyes… they are expressive, full of life, and have seen FAR too much for a normal lifetime. This man’s an ELDER, in all senses of the word.

The motherland never forgets…
