“Between 1923 and 1933, the village of Tomilino near Moscow saw… the formation of something akin to a colony of like-minded young artists. The sculptor Isidor Frikh-Khar was at that time working in the Tomilino children’s colony set up by the Moscow Department of National Education. He helped to implement Platov’s idea of teaching school teachers the rudiments of fine art. Also living in Tomilino at the time was Samuil Adlivankin, one of the founders of the New Society of Artists. He was paid frequent visits from Moscow by Alexander Gluskin and Mikhail Perutsky, who had recently made a name for themselves at the sensational NOZh exhibition. Besides, all of these artists — Platov, Frikh-Khar, Adlivankin, Perutsky, and Gluskin — had become close friends while working in the government’s Department for the Artistic Education of Children and in an experimental studio… They were like-minded artists, people of broad interests and sharp tongues, inventive, hill of passion and thirst for accomplishments. For all of them, the life-giving source was folk art, the primitive and the neo-primitive, and city folk visual art as well. Their common artistic goals and valour made them kindred souls, and they met at the home of the Platovs almost every day, each one bringing tons of interesting things to the table. Sometimes they would all work together and paint each other.”
