Creativity of the philosopher and artist Lev Dyakonitsyn at an exhibition in Kaluga Automatic translate
Connoisseurs of the pictorial art of the city of Kaluga had a rare luck - to get acquainted with the work of an amazing person - a historian, philosopher and artist Lev Fedorovich Dyakonitsyn. His unusual creative fate is striking in his achievements. Behind two higher educations, two completed postgraduate studies, a written textbook on the aesthetics of painting.
Dyakonitsyn began to draw as a child. His first artwork was portraits of soldiers, which the boy painstakingly redrawn from surviving photographs. Then more serious work followed - copying on posters of the pictures drawn in “TASS Windows”, even portraits of Stalin were carried out, the quality of which was carefully controlled in those years.
After leaving school, Lev Dyakonitsyn wanted to connect his life with cinema, but the admissions committee did not believe that the drawings shown by the young man are his own works. After this failure, Dyakonitsyn chose the historian as his dear profession. Only after graduating from the Archival Institute and Moscow State University, he approached the dream, at the same time as the graduate school of the Historical and Archival Institute, finishing the graduate school of the Repin Leningrad Institute.
As a result, painting became the main business of his life. In the style of his paintings, one can see not only the traditions of the avant-garde of the beginning of the last century, but also the connection with ancient Russian art. In his works, many genres are represented - from landscapes to still lifes, from philosophical paintings to everyday compositions. Each of his works is colorful, nostalgic landscapes of the Vologda region are replaced by female images.
The works of Dyakonitsyn decorate many museums and private collections. In Kaluga, an exhibition awaits visitors in the halls of the Art Museum until October 7th.
