Alexei Sokolov 1922-2001
Sokolov’s work was influenced by his time in France in the early 60’s, Rockwell Kent who Sokolov painted with in trips to northern Russia in the 1960’s, and the iconic Andrei Mylnikov who Sokolov painted with for over thirty years.
Kent always said he would like to see Sokolov paint in America but it wasn’t until years after Kent’s death that Sokolov had an exhibition in the U.S.
