Robert Rafailovich Falk was one of the most vivid and expressive Russian artists of the early ХХ century. Choosing for himself the main genre of landscape, he created laconic, but highly expressive works. Trying to summarize the shape and to mold the mass with color, he absorbed best painting lessons of P. Cezanne. As "sezanist", during his stay in France, Falk worked at the same place where previously Cezanne had worked. Mountain of Saint-Victoire in the south of France was one of those places.
