THE ARTIST KONSTANTIN KOROVIN ON THE RIVER BANK. 1905. Oil on cardboard. 36.1 x 51. State Russian Museum
5 march 2015—8 june 2015
The State Russian Museum holds a wonderful collection of portraits by Valentin Serov (1865-1911), many of which became classic of the Russian art at the turn of XXth century. On the other hand, Serov himself used to underline that he was not only a portraitist. The new exhibition, dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the artist, presents him as a master of historical, genre and landscape painting and author of the pieces of art which largely anticipated the experiments of the Russian Avant-garde.

The exhibition includes about 250 examples of Serov's painting, sculpture and graphic work from the Russian museum and other collections. The visitors will be provided with a unique opportunity to see the panel "Christ walking upon water" performed by Valentin Serov and Konstantin Korovin for the parish church of P. Tretyakov and V. Konshin's manufacture in Kostroma.
