Oil on canvas by Nicolai Cikovsky a Modernist Artist. Cikovsky was born and educated in Russia during the period of cultural and political upheaval preceding and following the Russian Revolution of 1917. He attended the Vilna Art School, the Penza Royal Art School, and Vkhutemas Higher Art and Technical Studies Institution. He emigrated from Russia in 1923 in the aftermath of the Civil War (1917–1922) to New York. Painting initially in a semi-Cubist idiom, he exhibited at the Charles Daniel Gallery and, in the early 1930s, the Downtown Gallery and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Primarily a figure and landscape painter, Cikovsky began spending his summers on Long Island’s East End in 1942, and settled there permanently by the early 1970s. Cikovsky's close friends and artistic colleagues included David Burliuk, Moses and Raphael Soyer, and Robert Gwathmey—the group dubbed the “Squiretown Circle” after the name of the street which became the group's favored venue for impromptu artistic and political debates. Cikovsky was also an active member of the Hampton Bays Art Group, a loose association of artists who exhibited together. It included Burliuk, the Soyers, Milton Avery, George Constant, Arshile Gorky, and others. Image size: 30.25 x 23.25 inches Outside dimensions with frame: 38.75 x 32.5 inches; 2.5 inch-depth
