November 30, the exhibition “Pavel Filonov” opened at the Samara Regional Art Museum. The exhibition is a result of the partnership between the two museums in the project “Cultural and Exhibition Centres of the Russian Museum.”
The first in Samara monographic exhibition of works by Pavel Filonov encompasses the entire career of one of the most prominent artists of the Russian avant-garde who dedicated his life to the development of a unique painting method and became renowned as “a painter of the invisible.”
The exhibition consists of 19 paintings and 12 graphic works that provide insight into the evolution of the artist’s creative vision and his way of thinking.
The State Russian Museum holds a massive collection of works by Filonov: in 1977, 300 works of painting and graphic art were donated to the Museum by the artist’s sister, Evdokiya Glebova, making the Russian Museum virtually the only owner of the artist’s legacy.

Henryk Siemiradzki (1843–1902), graduate of the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts, is one of the most prominent masters of the late 19th century European academic painting. His career in art was closely interwoven with Rome. The exhibition will unite 125 artworks by Siemiradzki and his contemporaries, Russian academic painters and sculptors, who worked in the Eternal City in the second half of the 19th century and the early 20th century.
