The artist is Kuindzhi
In later years, decorative searches intensified in the later years appeared in a large -format unfinished canvas „Crimea “(1900-1905). The desire for large color spots, for the emphasis of the line, the silhouette, for the flat construction of space, to monumentality, this work with the works of a number of other artists of the early twentieth century is related. Kuindzhi stood at the origins of one of the directions of the new landscape, marked by the tendency to decorativeness that his students developed.
