For several decades he brought up many young artists. Victor Kabanov chose the path of a hermit, a thoughtful observer and traveler – he did not care about the blessings and comforts, if they could interfere with his painting. He did much to capture in the colors the image of the epoch that has come down. Let this era is not so far removed from us – in due course vision will become sharper. And, must be, much will be seen differently. He died in Moscow in 2007, after a long illness.
