Russian painter Nikolay Bogdanov-Belsky was known for his striking portraits, genre art, and Impressionistic landscapes. He was an active member of several societies including the Peredvizhniki and the Arkhip Kuindzhi. A Young Sorceress, an oil on canvas by Nikolay Bogdanov-Belsky, is a key highlight of the upcoming Shapiro Auctions event. In this painting, Bogdanov-Belsky used a rich color palette and a composition that emphasizes the reflection of light. Also available is Yuri Pimenov’s oil on canvas. The maker was known for his fascination with the world of theater. Pimenov worked extensively as a stage designer for theatrical productions, and this painting portrays his imagination and creativity in the drama space.

His brushstrokes are particularly reminiscent of the Impressionist style.
