FALK, Robert Rafaelovich
Falk was to fall from favour during the Socialist Realist years, with him being perceived as an aloof, intellectual artist and in 1946 was criticised as a result of the first Zhdanov decree, after which he was not allowed to exhibit and it became dangerous to associate with him. Indomitably he continued to work and exhibit in private and during the last years of his life he became a major influence on the emerging generation of non-conformist artists. An exhibition of his work was held at the State Russian Museum in 1972.
Best known for his Cezannistic style, Falk is much loved by many contemporary painters in Russia whose teacher he was, and therefore linked them with masters of the previous generation.
