Vladimir Weisberg
1924-1985
THE CITY
signed with initials and dated '79' t.r.; the stretcher further inscribed with working notes, numbered '22' and dated '25 / IV / 78', with remnants of a Soviet export label
oil on canvas

The late 1970s are a lovely period in Weisberg’s gradual progression from his looser, broad-brushed pastel-colored early paintings towards the tighter, still, refined, monochromatic works of his mature oeuvre, which have earned him the sobriquet of ‘The Russian Morandi’. These so-called white on white paintings are elegant explorations of form and shade which change beautifully with the light. The present work still has the distinctive patterned nails which the artist used to attach his canvases to the stretcher.
