”COSSACK BALLADEER” is an Authentic Signed and Dated Ari
Roussimoff Oil on Canvas Painting, measuring 16 x 20 inches.
Begun in 1970 and completed in 2003, “COSSACK BALLADEER” is a
wonderfully colourful painting with a very harmonious melange
of rich reds, blues, yellows, and greens! This Artwork, deeply
steeped in the tradition of Eastern European Folk Art, depicts
a Ukrainian Cossack folk singer, garbed in the traditional
embroidered peasant shirt covered by a thick lamb-trimmed
vest. Seated on a rock, he entertains mother nature by singing
a lovely medely of native songs. The tree is filled with
attentive birds and even the horse relaxes to the man's tunes.
Fantasy takes reality to another plane, transporting the
viewer into the realm of age-old Ukrainian Lore. This Gem of a
Painting will evoke a World of Many Wonders! This Truly
Spirited Work captures the Very Heart and Soul of Slavic
Traditions. It is an excellent example of the Artist's Famous
and Well-Beloved Eastern European Folk Themes. There is a
Wealth of Happiness and Excitement here! This is a Work that
will surely add much Life to any Room and Collection.
