Announcement of the auction ArtSale.info No. 41. Sitnikov, Belenok, Zverev, Bordachev, Bielutin, Snegur, Zubarev and others. September 30 — October 6, 2020
Vasily Yakovlevich Sitnikov is a legend of unofficial art of the thaw era. His nickname Vasya the Lanternman is due to the fact that he worked on a projector for showing transparencies at the Surikov Institute. A virtuoso artist who was able to paint a picture with a broom or a floor brush was actually self-taught or a person of natural gifts (whoever you like). He painted beautifully and kept a whole “academy” of his students.
