The book "The 25 Great Masters"


The book "The 25 Great Masters" by the artist Alexander Cherkov presents 25 portraits accompanied by quotes about art and its place in the lives of 25 influential artists

The book "The 25 Great Masters" presents The unique project Of the artist Alexander Cherkov. The idea to create 25 reliefs of the artists in the various fields of art, was born out of Alexander Cherkov's desire to thank people who contributed to human culture and influenced his personal perception of art in particular and life in general. The book presents 25 reliefs by great artists accompanied by selected and inspiring quotes about art and its place in their lives. 

5 painters: Leonardo da Vinci, El Greco, Rembrandt, Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet
5 sculptures: Michelangelo, Rodin, Edgar Degas, Alexander Archipenko and Anish Kapur
5 composers: Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Chopin and Tchaikovsky
5 writers: Shakespeare, Pushkin, Andersen, Dostoevsky and Salinger
5 filmmakers: Charlie Chaplin, Walt Disney, Federico Fellini, Akira Kurosawa and Andrei Tarkovsky.

Art, one way or another, has an impact on each of us. When we talk about beloved artists, composers or writers, we mean the people who impressed us with their works, who had a formative influence.
There have been a lot of people like that in my life! And a desire was born to create a series of portraits of relief sculptures of personalities who particularly influenced the formation of a worldview. I selected 5 artists, 5 sculptors, 5 composers, 5 writers as well as 5 filmmakers. It was hard work - choosing the names that were most dear to me.
I want to emphasize that the list obtained is not the best ranking, in my opinion, of the personalities, but simply names of people, outstanding artists, wonderful representatives of humanity, to whom I feel a deep gratitude.
