Art critic's comment

Sergei Kiyanitsa about his Parisian sketches:

"When I flew to Paris, I was already planning to go to the open air at least two or three times. After all, this is Paris! To visit the Mecca of artists and not to go to plein air - what could be more stupid?! During my first plein air, I realized: you need to dive deeply into this city in order to write really good, heartfelt works. I had to stay in Paris for almost three weeks longer than planned. But the result was worth it. A series of Parisian sketches presented at the BON COURAGE exhibition in RakovGallery is an emotional story about a city that I saw for the first time and remained in my memory forever. warm feelings for Paris translated into the language of painting".
