"Sergei Bongart" by Mary Balcomb

"Sergei Bongart" by Mary Balcomb

These paintings inspire me.
IT SEEMS HE IS PAINTING WITH LIGHT RATHER THAN PAINT


Red Chair and Shawl, Sergei Bongart Posted by Hello


This beautiful volume (splendidly designed by Artist/Graphics Specialist Norman L. Nason) is resplendent with Bongart’s masterful paintings and drawings, and is interlaced with a biographical account showing the evolution of his oeuvre from Kiev to California. Highly trained in traditional academic methods at Kiev Art Institute, his work has the emotional quality of Russian Realism tempered by the light and brilliance of Impressionism. Life in Kiev, WWII, unique survival, emigration to the USA, and his exceptional teaching and painting careers are discussed. Bongart was a generous teacher and encouraged his students to tape the lessons for future reference and to share with others. It is in this spirit that TheScreamOnline shares with you the brilliant talent of this amazing human being.
