by Olga on April 2, 2016

Highly recommend to visit an excellent exhibition “Moscow Metro. Subterranean Monument” at Schusev museum of architecture (Moscow, Vozdvizhenka str., 5/25, 17 March – 17 July 2016). It represents the Moscow metro as a unique achievement of architecture and art in the variety of projects embodied and unrealized.

Natalia Goncharova at the Tretyakov gallery

by Olga on December 21, 2013

Natalia Goncharova (1881–1962), an exciting artist of the Russian avant-garde, who played a crucial role in the development of Russian modernism. Her name resembles the name of Pushkin’s wife, also called Natalia Goncharova, whom distant descendant she was. Freedom of avant-garde art of the early 20th century allowed the painter to try everything from primitivism to the grotesque. Natalia Goncharova was happy to know the lifetime success. Today she is known as one of the most expensive woman artists. The invaluable Tretyakov gallery exhibition displays all genre diversity of Goncharova’s paintings. Everyone will find there something touching the soul.

I was mostly touched by her Spanish women.

Architect of Power

by Olga on January 18, 2012

An exhibition dedicated to the 120th anniversary of one of the most famous Soviet architects Boris Iofan at the Schusev State Museum of Architecture, Vozdvizhenka St., 5 (M. Biblioteka imeni Lenina, Alexandrovsky sad, Arbatskaya) will be opened until February 26, 2012.
Boris Iofan is mainly known as an author of the “House on the Embankment” and the Soviet Pavilion with a sculpture of the “Worker and Collective Farm Girl” by V. Mukhina created for the World’s Fair of 1937.  Although never realized, the ambitious Palace of Soviets,  became the project of his life.  For me, the initial project of Moscow State University and those interior designs for the Palace of Soviets halls looking like Pantheon or a Christian church proved to be particularly interesting.

Levitan exhibition

by Olga on February 25, 2011

Exhibition in Moscow (Oct 15 to Mar 20)
ISAAK LEVITAN. To the 150th anniversary.
State Tretyakov Gallery, Krymsky Val

Isaak Levitan a classic Russian landscape painter is considered to be a creator of mood landscape genre. “Levitan’s landscape” is an understandable term both to art specialists and art lovers. The exhibition shows approximately 300 works by Levitan, presenting the most famous masterpieces as well as less known paintings. Among the latter for me was his last unfinished painting “Lake. Russia” full of light and spring hopes and his bouquets of flowers. Flowers, painted by I.Levitan, are not the most luxurious flowers in the world. These are lilacs with their first scent of spring, wild flowers, cornflowers, and dandelions as an enduring metaphor for fleeting nature of life. Similar to his mood landscapes these are flowers for the heart and soul.
