And if the artist has also a brilliant ingenuity of a draftsman and a virtuously accurate eye of an architect, as Edward Putintsev - the architect and the artist does, then quick water-color etudes and pen-made sketches from the road album, the composite landscapes, more durable, but inalterably made and finished on location, find the sense, which art brought in itself originally. We - the spectators - do not just get acquainted with a beautiful «view», the artist's mood interpenetrate into us, and so does his enthusiastic prayer «ad gloria» of the Lord's creature. Because what the real art is as not a prayer before the image of nature, of Man - of the Earth and all therein!
The «geography» of Edward Putintsev's peregrinations makes an impression by its variety: Malta and the Yenisei river, Corsica and Baltia, Sicily and Pskov, Mongolia and Arctic Circle, Cuba and Africa... But all this does not arouse such amazement: the XXth century has dislodged the notions on time and space, reduced the distances.
