The exhibition features more than 30 works from Sovkombank collection. The theme of the display is the Russian and Soviet landscapes and you will be able to trace the development of the Russian landscape painting from the times of L.V. Turzhanskii, P.I. Petrovichev and the Union of the Russian Painters to our days.
The Soviet period is represented by wonderful lyrical landscapes of M.G. Abakumov, A.P. and S.P. Tkachev, northern landscapes of V.F. Stozharov. Two works particularly stand out in this exhibition: A.M. Gritsai and A.A. Tutunov, that were created by the painters together in the open air from roughly the same spot. Though exploring the same subject, the landscapes are so different in perception and technique.
You can observe how the two capitals changed throughout the twentieth century from the best works of painters of Moscow and Leningrad movements.
The exhibition presents many findings, from Russian academic paintings to works by contemporary artists.
