Art critic's comment

"Kiryanov's heroes are most often jesters, actors, under whose foolish cap lies a pearl of strange and bitter wisdom. In fact, he depicts one hero who, being transferred from one circumstance, or even epoch, to another, changes with them. But he is always alone in a changing world, the vanity of which he accepts with sad and all-forgiving irony... Undoubtedly, the knowledge that he endows his characters (and which he shares with them) gives the significance of his painting, and the nobility of color helps to overcome sadness dissolving it into color harmony.
