In the Auvergne is typical of Shukhaev’s views of French medieval towns from this period. The sombre, ochre-heavy palette in the present lot is borrowed directly from the Old Masters and the use of tempera which creates a warm, subdued light recalls the technique fresco painting. Both style and medium are entirely suited to this timeless scene of a farmer leading a bull down the hill, the whitewashed walls of a modest town below contrast with the ancient castle ruins for which the region is famed on the hill in the distance.
