    Literature
    L. Piatnitskaya, Vladimir Yakovlev. Calendar. 2014, 2014, illustrated on the cover

    The present work was featured on the cover of the calendar published by Larisa Piatnitskaya in 2014 in memory of Vladimir Yakovlev.



    In 1995, together with Eric Bagdasarian, Larisa Pianitskaya arranged for Yakovlev's temporary leave from a mental institution to which the artist had been committed for over 10 years. After a short stay at Piatnitskaya's place, the artist found new home in a flat rented for him and stocked with a generous supply of oils and canvases by Bagdasarian. This short, yet important period for Yakovlev left a deeply personal body of work which the offered five lots (73-77) represent. A reflection on Yakovlev's iconic subjects, - a still life (lot 75), a flower (lot 76), a flying bird (lots 74 and 77), and a portrait of a friend (lot 73), - these works convey a notion of solitude and fragile nature of a human being which is the central theme of Yakovlev's life and work.
