SEDOV, Anatoly Georgievich / Анатолий Георгиевич Седов [born 1919]

“Winter Haze” / View from the Moscow River

1953

Between 1947 and 1953, when this was painted, Joseph Stalin erected seven skyscrapers surrounding the city of Moscow. To all but Muscovites themselves, the ring of buildings is known as “The Seven Sisters.” Their silhouettes are remarkably similar, but it is likely this building houses Moscow State University.

Biographical information on the artist Sedov is scant in English. And his inclusion in the Community Collection is almost accidental: “Winter Haze” was acquired on Ebay using funds generated by the C.C.Trust, a memorial fund.
