The name of Alexander V. Panteleev (1932-1990) is widely known in the country and abroad. He entered the history of modern art as an outstanding master, which tackled the difficult problem of the relationship between nature and civilization. The world of his images was very complicated and diverse. Metaphors, allegories and symbols has created a language of his individual artistic language. Theatrical scenery and architectural designs, landscapes of the Urals and the Russian North, village life and urban characters, the motives of the Italian and Cuban fantasy was accomplished in forty years of intense creativity.

When the master's life in Moscow, Vologda and many cities of Russia it took sixteen of his personal exhibitions. Forty museums in Russia and the CIS are his paintings and drawings. Six paintings are stored in the State Tretyakov gallery. More than eighty collectors of Russia, CIS and foreign countries own his works. During the life of the artist in his art Studio were kept about 100 paintings and 1000 drawings. Today the Vologda picture gallery includes 136 paintings and 1268 drawings Panteleeva, possessing the most complete collection of his works spanning all periods of the artist's works from 1956 to 1990 and all of his thematic cycles and stylistic direction.

Initially the creative world of A.V. Panteleev was developed from actual impressions of the Ural nature ("Spring tal", 1956). For twelve years he wrote from nature, creating lyrical landscapes in the impressionist manner. After becoming acquainted with the art of Picasso in 1956 the young artist has experienced a real creative coup, and ten years later developed an individual style, which is jokingly called "my oblique painting" ("the March. Blue shadows", 1969).

In 1976, the artist moved from Russia to Vologda and directly involved in the cultural life of the city, 1977-1983, and in 1987-1989 he was the head of the Vologda organization of the Union of artists of Russia and has done a lot for the development of culture and art in the region.

From 1981 until the death of Alexander V. Panteleev worked in the creative Studio on the street Kozlinski, 4. There is a perception that the workshop is the second house of artists, a cast of creative individuals, the nature of his master. When you walk into a spacious, two environments workshop Panteleeva, covers the spirit of focus and discipline and, at the same time, the spirit of the theatre. Indeed, it is reminiscent of the canvases of the master. And whether it is large its spaces, whether in the austerity of the interior, where nothing is superfluous, and among the few vintage furniture is only carved sideboard stands out magnificently theatrical. Whether the matter dear to the heart of the artist's subjects, wandering from painting to painting. All of this is important. Favorite, various types of cacti, huge, ceiling-lemon, vintage lanterns with colored glass, black Bukhara vase, Bohemian chandelier of the XIX century and reproduction of the portrait of A. S. Pushkin brush Orest Kiprensky. Household items – samovars, ladles, bowls, spinning wheels, and the underground rebels. He loved this house, organized by his creative will. Three easel standing in a large room, and the artist always worked simultaneously on several canvases, their design enhanced the sense of a logical rationality existing in the world. Thinking in the long evenings about the role of the artist and the long road to the picture, the wizard peered into the shape of easels, found their similarity to the crosses and said, "the Artist writes with the blood of his paintings, giving them soul, his body, mind – all that is".

The painting "still life with oranges" in 1971 from the permanent exhibition of the Museum most fully expresses the idea of all creativity of Alexander Panteleev. His most important task was to capture a model of the Universe, and the crystal allowed him to fulfil this daring dream. A ball of crumpled paper follows the structure of the crystal, oranges, brightly burning on its white surface like snow - symbolize the sun, and the blue metal fish – sign of the dying of nature. Panteleev worked on the industrial landscape, is rightly considered a leading master of this genre. But the honesty of the artist-citizen allowed him to see the deadly side of progress. So in 1967 came his first environmental painting "Black fish". This work would later lead the author to a unique cycle of robots "Rite of nepredvidennye" 1975-1989, where machines live like the people in rejoicing and suffering.

At the other extreme creativity Panteleeva sparkling flower grows classic theme, it is the images of ancient culture intertwined with motifs of the Italian Renaissance (Florence, 1982) and Russian classicism of Pushkin's time ("the poet", 1977). In Vologda the master turned again to the beloved world of theatre and has designed productions of the drama theatre – the tragedy of F. Schiller's "don Carlos" in 1978 and by William Shakespeare, "Antony and Cleopatra" in 1986. From 1986 to 1990, he worked on the Cuban series.

A special place in the artist took the theme of the North. Since the early 1980-ies he created the most harmonious and bright sounding tracks ("in the village of Krasnaya", 1981). And in 1989, the author began to write the "Russian North" series, which I thought for many years. It was a revelation, and it became clear that this is the beginning of a new way of the artist ("the Parable of the fish", 1989). But many of the ideas in this series, he managed to write only twenty-two paintings. 22 Jan 1990 Alexander left on the easel almost finished product ("Last painting", 1990) and six started canvases...
