A. Timofeyev “The Noon of the Heat”

Ten drawings made in 1975-76 in Stanitsa Vyoshenskaya were presented to the Museum in March, 2005, by the Honoured Artist of Russia A.V. Timofeyev. Among them are: “Alimov Pond”, “Wattle Street”, “Old Village Pigaryovka”, “Rooks”. M.A. Sholokhov held these drawings, imaginative and illustrative, in his hands for hours examining them, and, as the artist said, spoke well of them. Now they are constituents of the art work collection of the State M.A. Sholokhov Museum-Reserve.

In 1989, in the stanitsa, a personal exhibition of A.V. Timofeyev “A Poem of the Don Land” was held, which displayed his works of the Don themes. The drawings “Black Earth”, “Warm Earth”, “Sweet Earth”, “Winter Crop” are only a small part of the works devoted to the native land. That very year a series of the artist’s works were added to the Museum collection.

A.V. Timofeyev highly appreciates the work of M.A. Sholokhov, especially for his knowledge and sense of earth: “… and again a furrow after furrow, there falls down the age pressed earth cut up with a plough, the overturned and huddled up dead herb rhizomes run to the sky, a crushed turfy top hides in the black waves. The earth on the wave side is fluttering, turning over as if sailing. The insipid smell of the black earth is bracing and sweet…”

A.V. Timofeyev carried through all his life his sincere love for the native land of Sholokhov. For his great contribution in spreading the Sholokhov heritage he was awarded the memorial medal “For the 100th  Anniversary of M.A. Sholokhov”.
