Barto was infatuated with the Orient from his student years. Landscapes, flora and fauna of Daghestan, Adzharia and Central Asia were the subjects of his studies throughout his life and work. The piece on offer is characterized by the combination of plastic solutions of the 1930s with the artist’s subsequent finds of the late 1960s. Olga Reutenberg wrote a special chapter about Barto’s works in her book, Could Anyone Have Remembered that We Were…, Мoscow, Galart, 2004, pp. 344-349
