Description
“The relief was created at the request of the residents of the Babkino village on the site of the destroyed monument to Chekhov and Levitan. The project was financed by Aras Agalarov. The relief depicts the figures of A. Chekhov and I. Levitan against the background of the river Istra and the Istra landscape. The aura of the Istra landscape gives a favorable environment when two geniuses of the Russian culture work well”, - S. Kazantsev
