Arkady Intezarov (1909-1979) was a striking, distinctive artist known for the luminosity of his art, as he breathed life into his paintings, tremulous with their bright colours. Full of determination and enthusiasm he was much admired by his contemporaries. Artist Emeritus and member of the Russian Academy of Art his work is highly valued and hangs in many museums and private collections.
Intezarov’s paintings are rooted in the traditions of Russian impressionism and the easel artists, especially renowned for their miniature, three-dimensional scenes and thematic paintings. His work covers many different genres from large historical canvases to small intimate landscapes and portraits. He worked freely with his subtle gift for colour, spontaneously adapting the colouring and approach to the work depending on the artistic task before him.Intezarov travelled widely which is reflected in his art as he painted under the skies of Iran, Russia, Italy and France, forever finding a unique artistic tune for each new piece of scenery.
