The name of Igor Grabar (1871-1960) is inextricably linked with the Silver Age of Russian culture. One of the leading masters of Russian impressionism, Grabar had a significant impact on the development of this trend in Russian painting. Many of his landscapes and still lifes have become true classics of Russian art at the beginning of the twentieth century. Grabar also gained fame thanks to his works in art history (the first multivolume history of Russian art, monographs dedicated to Valentin Serov and Isaac Levitan) and the creation of a scientific exposition of the Tretyakov Gallery in the mid-1910s. Equally important is his contribution as an artist, scientist and organizer to the development of Russian art in Soviet times. Along with the landscape and still life, in the 1920s and 1930s Grabar actively worked in the field of portraiture, where he created a number of significant works (portraits of the composer S.Prokofiev and the musician V.Dulova, "Portrait of a Son", a series of portraits of Soviet scientists).
The exhibition dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the artist presents more than 120 paintings made in 1880s - 1950s. The exposition will include works from 17 Russian museums, as well as private collections in both Russian capitals.
