Scenes from everyday life are widely known to be one of the subject matters of painting and graphic art. In sculpture, however, one deals with this subject much less often. Nevertheless, the entire history of this genre in sculpture has known a great diversity in topics and style. Genre sculpture is akin to theater arts: it can communicate joy and suffering, satire and lyricism. The exhibition at the Russian Museum not only demonstrates a “cross-section of Russian life,” from the mid-19th century to the present day, but also unfolds a spectrum of styles and artists’ creative individualities in such a diverse and original art as sculpture. The best narrative works of plastic art will certainly resonate with the viewers due to the recognizability of life situations and human feelings and hopes. 

The exhibition is supported by PAO Severstal, PAO Power MachinesNordgold company.
