The works of Kh. A. Yakupov reflect the history of the Soviet people, the history of our country, starting from those years when the first revolutionary speeches flashed in Russia (Prologue, 1887. Kazan Students). His work is deeply organic and natural. There is nothing accidental in him, and, therefore, far-fetched.
The war, which became a test for everyone, revealed in every person the abilities of his soul, which are the main in his character. For Kharis Yakupov, a witness to the heroism of thousands of officers and soldiers, a participant in this war, it was important to show the greatness of the spirit of a person who did not flinch before the trials (“Before the Sentence”, “Flight to Freedom”). The spiritualized, humane and courageous image of Jalil is still one of the most memorable images of the hero poet created in Soviet fine art.
Creating civilian paintings about the heroes of war, peaceful days, Kharis Yakupov first of all reveals in his characters their moral essence, spiritual beauty, harmony, his agreement with the world or their struggle, thoughts. And his heroes are not contemplators, not observers, but the most active and direct participants in life (“Shepherds”, “Portrait of a piglet M. Galiullina”, “Gold of Tataria”, “Chelninsky beauties”). In the works of Kh. A. Yakupov, one main image, one main plot, looms as it were: a man and his work, his place on earth - and he writes this main plot all his life.
The national origins of the work of Kharis Yakupov are in the colorful and decorative brightness of the color of paintings dedicated to the people of the Tatar village, in those types that he depicts. The artist, as if from within, captures the essence of the national, the national. The painting of his paintings is always recognizable, because he uses such combinations of colors, such strokes, which are inherent in him.
A diverse, complex life was always reflected in the artist’s work, peculiarly refracting, and with his paintings Haris Yakupov in his own way affirmed the truth, beauty, work and victory of the human spirit.
