Konstantin Batyushkov monument. Work by Soviet Russian sculptor Vyacheslav Klykov (19 October 1939 — 2 June 2006)
The USSR State Prize laureate, Soviet Russian sculptor Vyacheslav Klykov (19 October 1939 — 2 June 2006)
Born into a peasant family, Vyacheslav Klykov grew up in the remote village of Myrmyzhi, Kursk Region. He studied at the construction college and the Kursk Pedagogical Institute. In 1968 he graduated from the sculpture faculty of the Surikov Art Institute, workshops of Nikolai Tomsky and Matvey Manizer.
According to Klykov himself, such sculptors as Alexander Matveev, Sergey Konenkov and Georgy Motovilov influenced him. The first work of Klykov was the composition “Youth”, depicting a boy with a foal.
Opened 29 May 1988 monument to Sergey of Radonezh
Since the mid-1980s, in his work he turned to Orthodox and patriotic themes. Along with other patriots, Klykov was the first to participate in the return of historical memory to society and people. In 1987, he created a monument to St. Sergius of Radonezh, on the eve of the anniversary of the Battle of Kulikovo. However, he was able to install it in the year of the millennium of the Baptism of Russia.
Orthodoxy and Russian history are the main topics in the work of the sculptor.
Vyacheslav Klykov died on June 2, 2006. A wonderful sculptor was buried in the native village of Marmyzhi near the walls of the Church of the Intercession of the Holy Virgin, which he managed to restore.
According to Klykov, a monument is an understanding of the fate of a person. His sculptures became places of pilgrimage.
