Catalogue Note

A leading exponent of socialist realism in Soviet Georgia, Gabitashvili painted the present lot during one of the summers he spent in Abkhazia in the 1960s. The artist owned a summer house in the village of Kelasuri, a stone's throw away from Sukhumi. The port and the lush greenery of this popular subtropical summer resort were frequently the subject of Gabitashvili's work.
