This section presents graphic arts that are connected with theater and scenography. The Sovkom gallery has a large collection of works created by Russian and foreign masters for theater and cinema.

Scenography. This is the art of creating the visual image of the performance using costumes, stage equipment, lighting and stage settings. Scenography uses the means of painting, sculpture, architecture, decorative arts to develop the content and style of a theatrical performance, increasing its impact on the viewer. The development of scenography is connected to the development of fine arts, theater and playwriting. Elements of theatrical art developed from the most ancient games and customs: masks, costumes, etc. By the 5th century B. C., the theater of Ancient Greece, besides skene, also had three-dimensional stage sets, which in the Hellenistic era were combined with the pictorial ones. The theatrical principles of the Ancient Greece were adopted by the Ancient Roman theater, which started using a curtain.

Russian scenography buy. Russian theatrical graphic arts buy. Russian scenography of the first decades of the 20th century is one of the most vivid pages in the history of the world art. Many Russian artists that worked for the domestic theatrical scene became known in Europe due to Diaghilev’s Russian Seasons, and later continued working for the theater after they emigrated.

As a result, their artistic heritage became dispersed between multiple foreign museum and private collections. The collection of the Sovkom gallery includes a large archive of the works of theatrical and scene graphic arts. These are sketches of costumes and stage sets, portraits of actors.

The great Russian graphic artistsare represented in our collection by the theatre-related works of B. A. Almedingen, A. N. Benois, M. V. Dobuzhinsky. Their works are characterized by exceptional picturesqueness and fine skill in reproducing the character and style of art of different eras. These artists participated in the tours of Russian opera and ballet in Paris organized by S. P. Diaghilev since 1907 (Russian Seasons abroad) and were inspired by the idea of a harmonious unity of dance, music, dramatic plot and figurative embodiment through plastique. Stage sets that they created were noted for their amazing combination of picturesqueness, fantasy, good taste and coloristic integrity of the costumes and stage environment, thus helping to revitalize scenography abroad as well as within the country.
