Ukrainian painter, master of portrait and landscape.
Features of the artist Nikolai Glushchenko: style of the artist, formed in Berlin and Paris under the influence of the Fauves (Henri Matisse, Andre Derain, Maurice Vlaminka) and artists of the school "Nabi" (Pierre Bonnard) in adult years has undergone changes under pressure from the masters of the Soviet art school. Recruited by Soviet intelligence, Nikolai Glushchenko lived in Paris for many years, collecting intelligence for the GPU. After returning to the USSR, the artist was forced to “let in” social realism on his canvases. In the last years of his creative career, Nikolay Glushchenko again returned to the bright colors and free broad strokes characteristic of his early works. Today Nikolay Glushchenko is one of the most expensive Ukrainian artists who worked under Soviet power.
