A beautiful painting I acquired when I was buying things from Russia and Ukraine maybe 7 or 8 years ago. It's painted on very heavy cardboard, as I'd say the majority from the Soviet period that I came across were - even fine artists such as this one just didn't have access to canvas and stretchers - so it's perfectly normal to see superb paintings on surfaces such as this. At any rate, I called this "Dreamer" because that is what it looks like to me. Painting is in very good shape - just a bit of rubbing around the edges that will not be an issue after framing. A large and powerfully emotive portrait, for sure.
