Pyotr Fomin. Nikita Fomin. In the Land of Pskov

P. Fomin. The fields have been harvested. 1978. Oil on canvas. 90 х 120. The State Russian Museum
18 april 2019—10 june 2019
The exhibition presents a hundred paintings by Pyotr Fomin and Nikita Fomin. P. T. Fomin (1919‒1996), holding the title of People’s Artist of the USSR, was an outstanding master of the Russian realistic landscape of the second half of the twentieth century. Nikita Fomin (b. 1949), Honored Artist of the Russian Federation, is widely known as a muralist who participated in the design of many public buildings, churches, memorials in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other Russian cities.

Most of the works presented at the exhibition are connected with the Pskov land, where P. T. Fomin comes from. The hospitable house of the Fomin family in the village of Maly near Izborsk has become a creative workshop and a place of attraction for people of similar spirit, including outstanding intellectuals from Leningrad and later Saint Petersburg. Love for the native landscape, for the hills and woodlands of the Pskov region is passed from father to son. Sometimes the artists depict the same places. By observing the rendering of similar motives in the works by both artists, one can clearly see the continuity of craftsmanship, high pictorial culture, as well as the peculiarities of the manner and intonation of their individual work.

Armchairs, chairs and stools in Russian art of the 18th-20th centuries

Armchairs, chairs and stools in Russian art of the 18th-20th centuries

18 august—10 october 2022

This exhibition will introduce viewers to the furniture preserved in the Russian Museum, a collection the public is not very familiar with. It will also open up a new perspective on well-known Russian works of art. What kinds of chairs exist? What are they made of? What do people do while seated? What poses do they adopt? What does an empty chair mean? A synthesis of painting, graphic art, sculpture, applied art, and design, the Russian Museum’s exhibition stimulates ideas on these questions and more.
