Artist – Petrov -Vodkin

“The African cycle of my works that wrote and write about me, with the light hand of Apollo magazine, is defined as „GOGENOVSKY “. I’m not afraid to confess to any of my mistakes and any borrowing – but there is a clear misunderstanding here. It is possible that Matisse was my inspirer when working on „Playing boys “that I also learned something from Picasso, but I never studied at Gauguin. In any case, Africa sobered me. From this trip, I brought a lot of studies, sketches and started paintings ”(to. WITH. Petrov-Vodkin. The path of the artist, “Soviet art”, November 17, 1936)
