Vladimir Borodin is distinguished within international artistic circles as a master of composition, as well as for his unusual colour schemes which give precise expression to the emotional and spiritual idea of every painting. Principal themes of Borodin’s works include ballet, music (including performers past and present), the philosophical, and impressionistic landscapes. His chief distinction is a domination of colour above form, emotions above order, a whirlwind above rest and peace.
