Artists of new time

Having remembered А. $~сЫЙГБ "Portrait of the farmer", Chingiz Akhmarov wrote that '... the folds of wrinkles on his (the farmer's) forehead remind the furrowed fields where he works on.' Indeed, the artist painted with respect and agitation the appearance of а toiler who was tempered in the freezing cold of winter and in the blazing heat of summer. The "Self-portrait" of the painter also testifies to his professional skill.

Another artist Latif Nasriddinov (1919-1942) was one of the first who began painting in the genre of still life. In his works in the genre of portrait, the artist described the people close and familiar to him. In his "Portrait of the father" he described his own father who was lost in thought.

The artist who acted efficiently in portraiture and enriched its new plastic possibilities was Shamsiruy Hasanova, а woman artist. She created works of art in the genres of still life and portrait devoted to children ("Gardner girl", "Violinist girl", etc.). She was one of the first in contemporary Uzbek art to begin the genre of still life ("Ball flower", "Chinese china", "Fruits", etc). She became more active in the years of preparation to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the great Uzbek thinker Alisher МачаГБ birthday. Together with her husband Chingiz Akhmarov, she participated in painting pictures for the foyer of the Alisher Navai Opera and Ballet Theatre which was under construction. These played an important role in the formation of her personal style. The artist held trainings in search of harmony between Eastern and Western styles of art. The solution of plastic problems, the gamut of decorative colours and the majestic art of painting in Central Asian miniature school influenced on the formation of her work, i.e. her creative style. These features are expressed in her historical portraits. The portraits of Zebuniso-begim, Uvaysi and Mutriba are characterised with their compositional structures, beauty of colour and expressiveness of linear plastics. Especially, the portrait of the Kashgar poetess Mutriba makes а strong impression on а person with its colours as delicate as peach blossom, as bright as crystal and its harmonious combination of lines.

In these years а competition was announced for the first time to create the iconographic portrait of the great thinker Alisher Navai. The portrait by Vladimir Kaydalov was found the winner of the competition.

The above-mentioned local artists as А. Siddiki, Urol Tansikboyev, Bahrom Hamdami, Latif Nasriddinov, Sh. Hasanova and M. Nabiyev became known with the portraits they had painted. During these years self-portraits were painted to а large extent. "Uzbek portrait" painted in 1927 by Urol Tansikboyev was exhibited in Philadelphia (U$A, 1934) and in Moscow (1934). Latif Nasriddinov, Hakim Rahimov, Dilbar Abdullayeva, Zarifa Saidnosirova, Sobir Azimov, Akrom Toshkentboyev and Lutfulla Abdullayev participated and attracted great attention of the artistic society with their works of art.

While in his portrait "The girl sitting in front of the grand piano" Hakim Rahimov described the novelty coming into Uzbek families by painting the Uzbek girl in the state of playing the grand piano, he expressed historical themes n his compositions devoted to Spitamen and Mukanna and in his early sketches about Amir Temur and Babur.
