ABOUT

In the final five years of his life, before his death from tuberculosis, Alexander Bogomazov worked on a triptych with the subject of Sawyers. Only one of these, Sharpening the Saws, a highlight of the National Museum of Ukrainian Art, Kiev, has been on permanent public display. The second painting in the cycle, the Work of Sawyers, was badly damaged during storage and only emerged, after extensive restoration, in June 2019.  A third painting, the right hand side of the triptych, ‘Rolling the Logs’, was never completed and only compositional sketches survive. One of these studies, showing the evolution of the triptych as a whole, is in the James Butterwick Collection – it is the only known colour sketch.
