Near the Old Sheds. 1975. Oil on canvas. The Russian Museum.
3 september 2014—3 november 2014
The exhibition presents the main steps of creative biography of Valentin Sidorov (born 1928) - the People's artist of USSR, the People's artist of Ukraine, full member of the Russian Academy of arts, head of management board of the Union of Artists of Russia and member of the Union of Writers of Russia. The exposition brings together about 90 works from 1950-2000's - paintings and sketches from the artist's studio and from the collection of the Russian Museum, Institute of Russian realistic art (Moscow) and private collections. Valentin Sidorov is an artist of a strongly marked national character. His art is devoted to his homeland, Russia, and deeply connected with its fate. Master of "inspired landscape", Sidorov creates the vivid chronicle of nature's life, speaks about its eternal life cycle and indissoluble links with the fate of the Russian village. The special place in the exhibition is given to the works from "My Homeland" and "Ways of Childhood" series (the former brought Sidorov the State Prize of USSR in 1984). These works of the master overcome the limits of rural theme and arise to the questions of great human significance.
