Catalogue Note

Children’s portraiture was a genre for which Sholokhov was well-known and a number of his paintings are held in the collection of the Artek summer camp museum in Crimea. He studied under Vladimir Yakovlev and Alexei Gritsai at the Surikov Institute and the present large-scale depiction of a children’s choir from the 1960s is a classic example of his work.
