Falk Robert
Portrait of Sviatoslav Richter. 1945

"I remember ... the attic of Robert Rafailovich in the house " with peacocks ". It was a time when Falk has been directing me in my desire to paint. Among the models of the artist there were Mikhoels, Shklovsky, Ehrenburg, Gabrichevsky ... even me. When the model and the artist were tired, then they played music".
