Pavel Filonov, Russian revolutionary painter, (1886-1941), The Banquet of Kings, 1913

Pavel Filonov’s works are mainly known in Russia. He was a revolutionary artist who fought in the Revolution and who refused to sell his works to private collectors because he wanted to keep it in the hands of the Russian people. Nevertheless, he was suspect by the Soviet art establishment (under Stalin), who thought Filonov’s style suggested anti-totalitarianism. Filonov starved to death during the siege of Leningrad during World War II. His works were banned from the Russian Museums until 1988.Pavel_Filonov_KingsFeat

About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.
