Boris Kustodiev. Portrait of Fyodor Shalyapin

Boris Kustodiev. Portrait of Fyodor Shalyapin
26 september 2018—21 october 2018
The one-painting exhibition at the Chelyabinsk State Art Museum presents a masterpiece by Boris Kustodiev — Portrait of Fyodor Shalyapin (1922). The exhibition is supported by Governor of the Chelyabinsk Region B. A. Dubrovsky. 

The portrait from the collection of the Russian Museum is an authentic variant of the large-scale portrait of the famous singer held in Shalyapin Museum in St. Petersburg. Kustodiev had painted the initial version in 1921, just before Shalyapin left Russia for good, taking the portrait with him. The smaller version was successfully exhibited in Sweden, Canada, and the USA. The artist himself was very fond of the painting and kept it until his death. 

The exhibition of the portrait will travel across the Chelyabinsk Region: after being shown in Chelyabinsk, it will move to Satka and then to Magnitogorsk to be displayed at the Magnitogorsk Painting Gallery.
