Description

The portrait is in semi-profile and is rendered in a realistic manner, with a sombre blue background. It is signed and dated in Cyrillic to the lower left, reading ‘A. Ivasenko 87’.

The painting is set within a wooden frame.

Andrei Arsenevich Tarkovsky (son of noted poet Arseniy Tarkovsky) is almost certainly the most famous Soviet filmmaker since Sergei Eisenstein. His visionary approach to cinematic time and space, as well as his commitment to cinema as poetry, mark his oeuvre as one of the defining moments in the development of the modern art film. He shot to international attention with his first feature, Ivan's Childhood (1962), which won the top prize at the Venice Film Festival. After that his fame grew further with the production of his other movies such as ‘Andrei Rublev’, ‘Solaris’, ‘Mirror’ and others.
