Constantin Alajálov: Out for a Ride

Silk must be a tricky material on which to paint. This work on silk circa 1930 is by Constantin Alajálov. It depicts a couple on horseback with a figure resting in the background. It seems more stylized and less detailed than many of the artist's more typical illustrations. I suspect there might be some fading as well.

Note:  I've got a lot more to say about the art of Constantin Alajálov.
