Vladimir Alexandrovich Serov was a student of I.I. Brodsky, twice the laureate
of Stalin Prize (1948, 1951) and a member of the USSR Academy of Arts (1954).
Vladimir Serov is in every respect the key artist of the soviet period.Serov was a strict and powerful president of the USSR Academy of Arts from 1962 until 1968. As most nomenclative painters, who had to earn their living through state commissions, Vladimir Serov also willingly explored themes that were not charged with
any ideological weight. For example, in 1940–1960s, he created a series of
elegant still-lives and landscapes, to which the work “Roses and Bell-flowers” belongs.
