About the Work

Liudmila Kondakova’s first childhood memories were all bright color: reds, blues, greens, yellows, and whites. She recalls that her first persistent question to the adults around her was “What color is this”? Painting absorbs Kondakova’s whole being. If she is not painting, she is thinking about her current or future projects. Days when she does not work, she considers lost. Liudmila Kondakova painted with egg tempera for many years. It is an unforgiving technique. If you make a mistake, you have to start over. Through this process, she learned planning and discipline, and she uses those skills to create highly detailed paintings of her favorite cities, places, and spaces.  She starts painting from the farthest background area, and she works forward. From the darkest parts of the painting to the lightest, as if she is bringing her composition from darkness to light. Paris is a city that Kondakova has portrayed time and again in her work, and its architecture has inspired many of her works.


“Carousel a Sacre Coeur” is part of a 2006 collection of miniature lithographs produced as a comprehensive homage to Liudmila Kondakova’s dedication to the faces of cities. It amply demonstrates her wit, knowledge of art and the depth of her world travels. True to centuries of printmaking tradition, great pride was taken during the production of these prints. Liudmila Kondakova extensively participated in the entire printmaking process. The printer, Art Estampe, has been uncompromising in taking the many essential steps necessary to ensure that these works are faithful to the artist's vision.

“Carousel a Sacre Coeur” is the depiction of a Carousel across the Sacre-Coeur. A magnificent display of Parisian architecture, intertwined with cultural elements brought in high artistic detail by Liudmila Kondakova. In “Carousel a Sacre Coeur,” Paris the city that Liudmila Kondakova finds inspiration comes to us like never before. Almost as if this scene did not belong to Paris but to another ethereal realm in which the spirit of Paris is reflected. The use of colors and light let us know that it is early in the day. The lack of shadows in the artwork announces that it is past morning, and the clear blue skies are an indication of a beautiful spring day. “Carousel a Sacre Coeur” is a 4.25 x 2.75  inch miniature hand signed lithograph.

About the Artist

A graduate of the Grabar Center in Moscow, she also attended Russia’s School of Sacred Arts, the Moscow Pedagogical Institute and the Moscow Art Institute. Kondakova connects her highly trained background to her artistic expression this way: “In my art, the essence and beauty has always rested in the details.” Original paintings and limited edition prints by Liudmila Kondakova have an honored place in private collections around the world.
