6 Nikolay Kupreyanov. Meeting at the Stern. 1932


N.N.Kupreyanov did the well-known revolutionary engravings Battleships and The Cruiser Aurora; his series of drawings Railways, Herds and Nights at Selishche have long become classical pieces of Soviet graphic art. The lithograph of the Baltic Fleet series, executed by the artist in 1932-1933, was one of the last pieces done by Kupreyanov. There is some confusion about the name of this lithograph. When published in different catalogues, it was named differently, although the artist originally named it Meeting at the Stern. (Q & A session) as quoted in the monograph N. N. Kupreyanov. Literary and Artistic Heritage, compiled by N. S. Iznar and M. Z. Kholodovskaya, edited by Y. A. Moloka, Moscow, Iskusstvo Publishers, 1973 (catalogue No. 158).
