Lot 166* | OSSOVSKI, PETR (1925-2015) Old Anchors, from the series "In the Ancient Land of Pskov" , signed and dated 1972.
Oil on cardboard, 72.5 by 79 cm.
Provenance: Acquired directly from the artist by the previous owner.
Important private collection, USA.

The work is from Ossovski’s mid-1960s–mid-1970s cycle Na drevnei zemle Pskova (In the Ancient Land of Pskov). The series was inspired by the people and landscapes of the Talab Islands in the south-eastern part of the Pskov Lake, 25 km to the north-west of the city of Pskov. It reveals the artist’s very personal reflections on the history of this borderland Russian territory.
