Athens fundamentally influenced the work of Alexander Barkoff. The Mediterranean pictorial word defines the theme of the oeuvre of the Finnish artist. Here is the view on the cemetery lane at the Kerameikos, the only antique cemetery of the city. The landmark of the cemetery is a huge bull above the grave of Dionysus of Kollitos.
The canvas is mounted irregularly and with air inclusions, there with small buckling and craquelé. The cardboard measures 42.5 x 57.2 cm, the total dimensions, including the frame being 54.5 x 68.5 cm.
Alexander Barkoff (1870-1942)
Alexander Barkoff studied at the School of Arts and Crafts in Helsinki from 1895 to 1897 and at the Drawing School of the Finnish Art Association from 1893 until 1897. He lived abroad since 1900, mainly in Salonica and Athens. He was honored with the 3. Prize of the ducats´ exhibition and was a member of the Finnish Art Association. Longer stays in Paris and Florence followed. Especially his portraits and figure are well-known. Works by Barkoff are represented i.a. in the Ateneum in Helsinki. (tm)
