  Roe deer with a landscape in the background
1913
Oil on cardboard
98X71 cm
Art Museum of Georgia

According to the Director of the National Arts Museum Guram Gogia, Niko Pirosmanashvili painted this deer from the earthen figure of deer, which was widely spread in Georgia of those times. It can be felt from the painting too. The most interesting here is the concept of space by Pirosmani – it is neither space (understood classically) nor complete flatness. In addition, the background of landscape is very remarkable – it resembles the landscape painted on the matchboxes of those times.
