Catalogue Note

After the revolution, in the 1920-1930s Central Asia became a popular subject in Soviet culture. Paradoxically, for the Soviet fine artists, Central Asia equalled freedom. Julia Razumovskaya visited Central Asia once in 1925, never again to return. The present lot is an example of her work inspired by the exotic theme of the Orient.
