The exhibition is devoted to the creative oeuvre of two generations of the family of Petersburg artists Traugot: Georgiy Traugot (1903–1961), his wife Vera Yanova (1907–2004), whose works are presented to viewers for the first time ever, and their sons – Alexander Traugot (born 1931) and Valeriy Traugot (1936–2009). The exposition brings together paintings, sculptures, graphic works and porcelain from the collection of Alexander Traugot, who lives and works in Paris nowadays.
In the works by Georgiy Traugot and Vera Yanova who worked mostly in the field of city landscape, portrait and still life the discoveries of the Postimpressionism as well as the Russian and foreign Avant-garde of the beginning of the 20th century had found the distinctive development and interpretation. Alexander and Valeriy Traugot who are the greatest masters of the book illustration and book design are presented by their paintings, sculptures, graphic and porcelain works.
The main idea that unites very different creative oeuvre of four artists in this exhibition space is the theme of Petersburg. This theme reveals itself in the sincere passion attitude of each author to the city and in the penetrating tragic intonations that distinguish their interpretation of the “Petersburg text” in the artists’ works of different years.
