Пост. в 1961 через МК РСФСР


Modern life was always a topical theme in the art of Georgy Nissky, revealed almost exclusively through the landscape. This particular example is one of the artist s later, more poetic and "earthy" works, compared to his primarily industrial pre-war Constructivist landscapes. In this work, the road is the vertical dominant, underlining the rhythmic alternation of the horizontal ground with a multi-coloured group of collective farm workers pausing to rest, followed by the village being rebuilt.
