“Sketches of Vyoshenskaya” by A.V. Bogdanov

A collection of pictures by an artist from Vyoshenskaya, Alexander Bogdanov, entered into the holding of the Museum-Reserve of M.A. Sholokhov in February, 2012.

Alexander Vladimirovich Bogdanov (30.07.1950-22.07.2004) lived in Stanitsa Vyoshenskaya. Since his childhood he had been fond of drawing. After finishing school he entered the Rostov School of Fine Art named after M.B. Grekov. He was a true admirer of his home country, and when his groupmates went out for a plein air to Krasnodar, Stavropol regions, he always made a choice of Vyoshenskaya.

After graduating from the art school Alexander Vladimirovich worked as teacher of drawing in the Vyoshenskaya secondary school, and at his leisure he went in for wood carving, sketching the stanitsa’s surrounding, painting landscapes.

In his works the artist depicted the nature of his native country, tried to imprint the retiring appearance of the “dying” villages, everyday life of the stanitsa country fellows.

The art exhibitions of A.V. Bogdanov were held in the sanatorium “Vyoshensky” and in the Palace of Culture.
