. His mother died - in his arms - of starvation in Yerevan in 1919 when Gorky was 15.
He escaped the Armenian genocide but the past never let go and drove him forward. His work rooted in his personal history.
In 1947 he created the expressive 'Agony'. Life strain drove him into his own dead in 1948.
His impressions of life essentials and his touch of life he brushed and coloured in 'Agony' and in 'The artist and his Mother' . Two art treasures.
