A Russian oil painting by artist Prokopyuk titled "War" 1974

A superb painting by Mikhail Sevastyanovich Prokopyuk, b.1929. Entitied ‘War’ by the artist, and dating to 1974.

A wonderful, compelling, narrative painting which looks to have been scaled up for a later, larger work.

Inscribed verso:

Mikhail Sevastyanovich Prokopyuk (b.1926), ‘The Russian Mother’. Oil sketch of a mother standing over the body of her dead soldier son. A soldier comrade kneels in the background, clutching his PPSh-41 machine gun.

Also signed and dated 1974, and noting the purchase from the artist’s estate in 1989.

An incredibly interesting and powerful piece.
