VLADIMIR DOUCHKINE

GALLERY


In addition to my book I want to give the opportunity to study some examples of Vladimir Douchkines work in detail. So I choose several of his flats suitable to this according to my opinion. These can be enlarged very much.

Hope you enjoy it.

Zur Ergänzung meines Buches möchte ich den Sammlern die Gelegenheit geben Vladimir Douchkines Arbeit im Detail zu studieren. Dazu habe ich einige meiner Einschätzung nach besonders geeignete Stücke ausgewählt. Diese können stark vergrößert werden.

Ich hoffe es gefällt Ihnen.


French Infantry 1809


Napoleon painted about 1950

Soubise phaeton, painted about 1935

There is something unique in Douchkine´s painting of coaches and carriages. He used the "third dimension" of flats to achieve an effect not fully visible on a photo. For example when painting a wheel he shades the about 1 mm strong engraved surface inside of the wheel. It can be seen fairly good on the Soubise phaeton, but is of course only to be noticed in its full effect on the painted figure in nature.
