    Help me identify this book (scan of single page inside, possible russian)

    Hi there,

    I have been told of this book that was about an art academy somewhere (maybe Russia) that had a program which took 5 years to complete. All I have is a single scan of a page in there and I thought maybe someone here could know the name or give me a pointer. You help is greatly appreciated. Now here is the scan:

    Dear Logo (I don't know your real name) -

    Your question is too easy. )
    That's one of our artists, Daud Akhriev. He belongs to the artists group called "703", which follows academic traditions. This is a group of very sucessful and respected artists, well-known in Russia and abroad.
    They all are graduates of the Repin Institute (Russian Academy of Arts).

    The scan is one of his drawings, from a small catalog published with a very limited edition during 1990-s. As far as I know it was about A4 size format.

    I've said it before and I say it again - visit more often the art portal Practicum.org - it has increadible source of information, including an article about this group.

    Here is the link you'll thank me for )

    Daud's photo (and his bio) goes first, right before Nikolay Blokhin (who is also the member of this group).
    Daud now lives and works in the US, but visits St.Petersburg quite often.

    Enjoy!!

    Please let me know if you have any further questions in regards of Daud or other artists - guru@4-art.org.
