About The Artist:

Although Cherepov was primarily a landscape painter, his philosophy was that an artist should enjoy the ability to react to anything that inspires him. Originally from Lithuania, Cherepov enjoyed a long and varied career in the United States after his arrival in 1952. He received many honors, including 10 different one-man shows at Grand Central Galleries in New York City.

During Cherepov's time in Central Europe, he was commissioned for a range of projects, including royal portraits, advertisements, and movie posters. He settled in Greenwich, Connecticut, where he was inspired by the New England landscape. Cherepov worked en plein air, or outdoors, to accurately capture the natural light and shadows of his subjects.

Not only was Cherepov an accomplished painter, but also a popular teacher. He worked at the Asilomar Institute in California among other schools. To spread his knowledge beyond the classroom, Cherepov wrote a book called "Discovering Oil Painting" and co-authored "The Oil Painting Book" in 1971. He was a member of numerous artists clubs including the Allied Artists of America and the Hudson Valley Art Association.

This landscape depicts a small village at the foot of a mountain range. Always one to paint on site, Cherepov perhaps painted this landscape on one of his many travels around the world. The bright dabs of paint capture the brilliance of the mountains as well as the sun soaked valley below. The scene is tranquil, but the clouds above the mountains appear dark and heavy, promising to break the serenity.
