DANCING WITH FRUITS by Mihail Chemiakin is a rare 75 color serigraph. The size of the image is 36” X 36” and the edition is 97. It was published in 1998 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
I am showing the piece in the frame as it appears on the wall in my home. I am offering the piece unframed on stretched canvas. It is in excellent condition and has no damage. The retail list price of the piece unframed, on stretched canvas, is $3,900.00.
The frame cost was over $1,500.00 due to the expensive moulding. I am removing the frame and reducing the price by $1,400.00 to $3,900.00 and shipping free. Packing and shipping would likely exceed $500.00 framed.
This piece is beautifully signed using gold ink which is more colorfast than other inks used by Chemiakin in signing many pieces on canvas, including mine as shown in my picture, which is why I am showing a separate picture of the gold signature on this piece.
Chemiakin’s serigraphs are truly master works, representative of his best work in the graphic medium. While he has created in excess of 200 editions of lithographs, he has created only nine editions of serigraphs. His lithographs usually have 12 to 18 colors, while his serigraphs have 75 to 100 colors, and four to six times the image size in square inches.
Anyone wanting to own works by Mihail Chemiakin will find his serigraphs are by far the most beautiful and valuable in the graphic medium and have very limited availability.

In the picture shown with Boris Yeltsin, Chemiakin is receiving the ‘State Prize of Russia” for Arts and Letters. President Yeltsin came to Washington DC to make this presentation to Chemiakin, not for a state visit with President Clinton.
