Konstantine Gamsakhurdia's portrait. 1961
"Konstantine Gamsakhurdia's portrait" is a typical description of appearance and character. The painter has caught the restrained grandeur of the eagle-like posture of the Georgian artist. The oblong shape of the head, the individual characteristics of the nose, brows, eyes and closed narrow lips are penetrated with volitional confidence of his character.
Only the press has mentioned about the portrait highlighting in many times the performance mastery, character similarity, common expressiveness.
The Georgian prominent poet Moris Pockhishvili said the following about the work: "Here the honored thinker, wise and strong-willed man is looking at you. A look of eagle, a provident look and soil majesty is winking from the canvas "Academician Konstantine Gamsakhurdia's portrait." The famous writer's hands remind of eagle wings folded only for a while after a great shift… And how deeply the people's artist reads the human soil, how far he is from external, formal effects."
