“Chinese Fruit Seller” by I. Gerasimoff

Oil painting of a “Chinese Fruit Seller” is by the Russian atist I. Gerasimov. The masterful use of form along with gradiated pastel hues and the impasto painting technique seen in the man’s white hair to create fullness, and the lined face of the gentlemen give the impression of a content and wise person. The creases of the clothing are beautifully executed to give a draped appearance, and his woven basket is finely painted. The background surfaces and steps depict great depth and texture. He signs his paintings I. Gerassimoff.
