    One of the most prominent successors of the 'Jack of Diamonds' traditions in art, Grigory Sretensky studied in VKHUTEMAS under the leading Russian master Petr Konchalovsky. In 1921, Sretensky became one of the founders of the artistic community 'Bytie' ('Existence'), founded by the younger generation of 'Russian Cézannists,' graduates of VKHUTEMAS, who manifested a synthetic artistic expression though analysis and continuity of the artistic legacy of the previous generations of Russian art.

    Still life is central to Sretensky's oeuvre. Most often painted from life, these still paintings become a purely visual and extensively emotional conveyal of the artist's perception of the phenomenon of being.
