FLOWERS IN PAINTINGS

Konstantin Korovin (1861–1939). On the Sea Shore. 1910. Oil on canvas. 46.5 x 77
9 june 2010—21 june 2010
The Russian Museum owns the large collection of works that present the genre of the flower still-life created by the Russian artists of different epochs, presenting different styles and ways of art. The exhibition in the Marble Palace, devoted to "The Imperial Gardens of Russia" Third International festival appeals for revealing the different sides of representation of the "flower theme" in the art of Russian painters and showing the variety of plastic searches in the sphere of this genre. For this exhibition had been chosen the works that clearly show the peculiarities of the picturesque image of the flowers in the either period of history of the Russian Art, like academism of the beginning of the first half of XIX century; the beginning of XX century - the time of re-comprehension of art traditions, or the Soviet epoch.
Together with the works of K. Korovin, V. Saryan, N. Sapunov there are presented also the canvases by A. Gerasimov, the well-known representative of the official way in the Soviet art and the still-lifes by such outstanding artists as V. Tatlin, A. Osmerkin, E. Moiseenko, Z. Arshakuni, N. Nesterova. In the most part of the works is used the traditional form of the "bouquet still-life", where painter organizes the propounding according to the appointed compositional, picturesque or semantic programme. Setting the pure picturesque tasks or finding in the image of flowers the hidden logic of world outlook, painters return us the beauty and harmony that we are often lacking in our everyday life.
