This large sized expressionist work by noted artist Ari Roussimoff was painted in 1978. Exhibited in galleries at the time it was created, the work resurfaced only recently and was exhibited in New York. It is one of the artist’s favorite pieces of that earlier period. Based on an old Russian fairytale, Roussimoff interprets the scene with bold and vibrant colors and passionate brushstrokes. The whymsical character of Farnos (a Russian version of Punchinello) has provided much amusement for the artist who has over the years inserted him into numerous compositions.
