Arthur A.Hovhannisyan
The article is a brief study of the famous Armenian sculptor-painter Khoren TerHaroutyan’s works of art echoing the cataclysmic events of 1915. Such works as “Deir El-Zor”, “In the waves of the Euphrates”, “I’ll curse the day when I was born,” encapsulating the artist’s childhood memories and tragic experiences, permeate with a deep feeling of suffering and pain. On the other hand, “Van” (“Partisan”), “The Vulture and the Skeleton,” “Little Mher,” and few others are varigated in style, demonstrating a particular trait in Khoren Ter-Haroutyan’s approach to sculpture and graphic art.
