"M. Abakumov's artworks are so bright and full of sunshine thet it is no wonder critics call him the "winged artist", "solar brush of Russia". He was called "a living classic" even during his lifetime. M. Abakumov's art is very patriotic. He sincerely believed in the revival of powerful Russia. Mikhail Georgiievich infinitely loved life, people, he was a deeply religious man. The artist pictorialized his love in his paintings and gave it to us - to the succeeding generations. http://melarusart.ru/en/content/8-июня-в-цдх-закончилась-выставка-михаил-абакумов-и-его-время
