About the Artist

Alexander Arkadievich Litvinov was born on May 18, 1967 in the city of Lubny. He graduated from the Lubensk secondary school № 1. One of his favorite lessons was drawing. I was even more attracted by studies at an art school, where boys and girls were introduced to high art thanks to the wise teachers Vasily Semenyuta, Anatoly Kharchuk, Nikolai Korablev, Tamara Moshnikoviy. Especially in his artistic development, Alexander owes to Vasily Ivanovich Semenyuta, his classical school of teaching, which he enriched in his time through his acquaintance with famous artists Alexei Asaulenko and Petr Likhin. And also an extremely important role in the passion for painting was played by the fact that Alexander's father, Arkady Petrovich Litvinov, was both a talented artist and an excellent teacher. He had 53 years of teaching experience - he taught drawing and drawing at the Lubensk school №8, many of his students connected their professions with artistic creativity. Alexander's elder brother, Oleg Arkadyevich Litvinov, a member of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine, now lives in Odessa, also chose the artistic path.

And after leaving school, Alexander served in the army, where his artistic talent came in handy - in Soviet times, visual agitation was highly valued. He served in Dnepropetrovsk, where two personal exhibitions of his paintings were organized. While still at school, Alexander began to design books, in particular, children's literature. He received his first creative fee in the tenth grade from the publishing house "Raduga" for the design of the book by Anatoly Rybakov "Krosh's Vacation". Later she studied at the Odessa Theater and Art School, specializing in "Decoration of puppet shows and artistic and props art."

Studying at the school and passion from childhood with historical and biblical literature greatly influenced the creative manner of the artist. He works in the style of the so-called figurative art, where the main thing is the image of the human body.

"Candlemas": A Celebration of Light and Revelation

In "Candlemas," Litvinov captures the solemnity and joy of this important feast day, which is also known as the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Feast of the Presentation of our Lord Jesus. The artist's depiction emphasizes the themes of light and revelation, with Simeon’s recognition of Christ as the light for revelation to the Gentiles being a focal point of the narrative.

The Artwork's Significance

This piece serves as a meditation on themes of purity, sacrifice, and the fulfillment of prophecy. Through "Candlemas," Litvinov invites viewers to reflect on the deeper meanings of the feast and its significance in Christian theology as a moment of encounter between human and divine.

We invite art enthusiasts and collectors to explore "Candlemas" by Alexander Arkadievich Litvinov, along with other masterpieces in our collection. This artwork offers a unique opportunity to engage with a pivotal moment in Christian history, portrayed through the evocative and spiritually resonant medium of oil on cardboard.
