The State Russian Museum opens the first exhibition of works from its collection at the Primorye State Art Gallery in Vladivostok. Works by Karl Bryullov, one of the most notable Russian 19th-century artists, are at the core of the Museum’s collection. Large-scale historical paintings, ceremonial portraits, and monumental works earned him fame within literary and artistic circles. Even the imperial family admired paintings by the Great Karl.
Bryullov’s work combines solemnity of the classical form with the introspection of romanticism, a deep investigation of human personality, and a close interest in the dramatic collisions of history and contemporaneity. The exhibition, including over 50 paintings and drawings by Karl Bryullov and his school, demonstrates the tremendous impact that the Great Karl had made in the context of late romanticism.

The exhibition spotlights old Russian icons, wooden sculptures, personal sacred objects and jewellery created in various places and at different times, yet sharing the same theme. St George is one of the most highly venerated saints in Russia. His image is viewed as symbolic of Russian history. “St George and the Dragon” is the most frequently recurring subject in the Russian St George iconography.

The Russian Museum exhibition project Artists on War and Peace can be seen as a diptych comprised of two exhibitions: Images of Military Life in Russian Art of the 16th to 20th Centuries and Home and Family. Images of Peaceful Life. They explore two existential aspects of human life perceived as polar opposites. The first half of the diptych features scenes of everyday life during wartime, while the other focuses on the theme of the home and family as guardian of the moral values of the Russian people.
