Description of the artwork «Life goes on»

It is difficult to imagine at least a few of the reasons why picture "Life goes on"Tatiana Yablonskaya could "disgrace the Soviet power". But then, in 1970, before the opening of Shevchenko exhibition, there is plenty to remove the picture from the exhibition, the artist from all his posts, and the name Jablonski in a few years to make taboo any mention out loud and in print.

The first art critics to Soviet painters and sculptors were people far from art. Before the opening of any exhibition exposure was examined carefully to some official who is responsible for the promotion, and decided – whether a painting or a sculpture to stand in front of the audience. Yablonsky made a too bold move, opposing this tradition at one of the congresses of artists. She could not remember.

In the early 60's tired children's stories spring and cloudless Tatiana Yablonskaya was looking for a starting point for a creative reboot and found it in Transcarpathia. Active search of new inspiring images contributed to the beginning of "thaw". The artist was very fond of this painting and considered it one of the best in the cycle, but all this bright, rich creative exploration path is about: "At the same time, and began the craze for monumental art. Seriously said that easel painting has become obsolete. Only generalized images, only the synthesis of feelings and thoughts, a synthesis of form, stylization. And my search also tried to Express General ideas, to find great, succinct images. It was all good, but I have gotten it to vulgar tasteless styling". Again, you need to steer clear of a new stalemate. To steer in the painting.

Speaking of the film, which disgrace the Soviet power. Jablonsky caused in the Central Committee and for two hours told that she was almost an enemy of the people. Her picture on the wall of the rural house is too old, and this garland of peppers and corn is terrible and the woman is dressed not in the fashion – Soviet women in crepe de Chine walking. Slander, in a word.
