Most of the represented works have never been exhibited. Eranuhi Aslamazyan, reproducing people of different countries, at the same time tried to reveal his/her inner world, personality, national and social belonging. These works are unique with the non-mold solutions and dynamics. The portraits of men and women reflect her worldview. She tried to embellish the poser with the depth of the material, the subtle complexity of the backgrounds, dark and bright colours. In general these works carry the seal of the era’s ideology and the breath of greatness.
