St. Petersburg: Rus muz, 2012. Sewn cl. After leaving Russia soon after the 1917 revolution Grigoriev lived and worked in various countries, twice teaching and painting in Chile. Some his works of these years (late 1920s and mid 1930s) are in Chilean museums, and they are published in this Russian Museum exhibition catalogue with paintings and drawings from several other collections. Together they give a good overview of a major artist of modernist ilk, whose style is difficult to characterize: his edgy portraits seem to penetrate to his subjects inmost thoughts and group portraits of peasants convey their woe and desperation. 192 p., 23 cm, approx. 150 color and b/w illus., Rus. and ENGLISH.
