Painted in the late 1960s, the present work is one of the earliest pieces by Nesterova ever to appear at auction. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Nesterova was one of the few female Russian artists to gain an international audience and has been the subject of exhibitions in New York, Chicago, Montreal, Paris, Milan, Berlin and Madrid. She lives and works in New York City.
