ep 05 001586 Alexander Maximov. Circles and Squares in a Square. №1


In the 1960s the artist was very interested in the dependence of the viewer’s perception on various color and shape transformations and interactions. A large body of works of obviously experimental nature was done during that period. The purely explorative function of representation attracted Maximov just as strongly as the beauty and consummation of a work of art. In 2005 the State Tretyakov Gallery held a solo exhibition of Alexander Maximov, for which an exhibition catalogue was published. Maximov’s works are in the collections of the Tretyakov Gallery, the State Russian Museum and many provincial Russian museums.
