Alexander Dmitrievich Silin

Alexander Dmitrievich Silin (Latvian, 1883-1942) "Portrait of Lilya Brik", 1921 oil on canvas signed lower right in Latin, inscribed in Cyrillic and dated en verso "Alexander Silin/Portrait of Lilya Brik/1921/Riga". Framed. 39" x 30-3/4", framed 42" x 34" Provenance: Private collection, New York, New York. Notes: Lilya Brik was a complex and somewhat inscrutable figure of early 20th-century Russian avant-garde culture, noted for her intelligence and passion for the arts. Her wide social circle included Feodor Chaliapin, Boris Pasternak, Sergei Eisenstein, and Pablo Picasso. Born into a wealthy Jewish family, she and her sister, the writer Elsa Triolet, were celebrated beauties; their portraits were painted by such luminaries as David Burlyuk, Fernand Leger, Henri Matisse and Marc Chagall, and Brik's image was on many popular posters and magazine covers of the time. She acted in and eventually directed several early Soviet films. Married at age 20 to the writer Osip Brik, Brik later had a fiery and lengthy relationship (with her husband's knowledge) with the melancholic poet Vladimir Mayakovsky, who dedicated much of his work to her. After her divorce from Brik, she married General Vitaly Primakove - he was eventually executed during the Moscow Trials. In 1938, she married for the third and final time to the writer Vasily Katanyan. In 1978, after suffering a debilitating illness, Brik decided to end her life - a fitting end to a woman determined to live life on her own terms. Accompanied by an expertise from T. S. Zelyukina of the State Tretyakov Gallery. Estimate $7,000-10,000Read more
