Description of the artwork «Youth»

The artist said "Youth" everyone understands in his own way, and that picture will forever remain a mystery to her.

In 1969 in the town of Sednev in the open air, Yablonskaya most likely have managed to be at the intersection of the space of flows, at the same time amanorya multiple meanings and messages. While one cosmic flow worked on the birth of the incredibly clean color and stretching down perspective, the other took care of finding the desired character. The artist did a sketch on country meadow, near a small lake. Passed by the young man noticed, and began to examine it, wondering what such Yablonsky found in this lake. "Wait, please, wait a minute" - she asked.

This pattern of untimely, non-traditional, completely devoid of national, temporal, personal bindings and explanations. She could appear in some surreal artistic atmosphere and take a seat near men in bowler hats Rene Magritte. It would be absolutely relevant in the twenty-first century as graffiti on some dull, grey wall in the center of the city as a social of philosophical message to passersby. And the fact that "Youth" appeared in 1969 in the Soviet Union from under the brush of the artist, at that time, twice laureate of the State prize, due to a sharp susceptibility of Tatiana Yablonska to the universal meanings that are in the air.

Now the picture has become part of the permanent exhibition of the National art Museum of Ukraine, but in life, Yablonskaya humbly waited for the time in closed funds. The artist's daughter Gayane Atayan told how in 2001, a Bank clerk from Japan, long shaken by the picture, I decided to see her live. Using the official trip to Paris, he wrapped the weekend in Kiev to look at "Youth". He was not lucky. During the weekend at the National Museum of Ukraine is simply impossible to get into the funds, all closed. Certainly, Japanese Amateur lovely took it as a continuation and part of the unfathomable mystery that surrounds this picture.
