Nota del catálogo

Myths and legends inspired many of Vasily Kotarbinsky's paintings and he regularly produced versions of his most popular compositions. The subject of Medusa is known to us from pre-revolutionary postcard reproductions (fig.1). The present version is among his most vivid large-scale works.
