On the 70th anniversary of Aristarkh Lentulov's death

In 1941, Aristarkh Lentulov was evacuated to Ulyanovsk. In the fall of 1942, he returned to Moscow, where he died on April 15, 1943, and was buried at Vagankovo Cemetery. Lentulov was keen on depicting himself as a buffoon folk-warrior, which in the main was consistent with his character and life role. // "The night on the Patriarshie pond", 1928
