Arkady Rylov (1870-1939) is one of the classics of the Russian landscape painting. His art became widely popular in the early XX century. His works were on display at the exhibitions of “The World of Art” group and Secession in Vienna. For his “Green noise” landscape he was chosen an honorary member of Salon d'Automne in Paris; and his famous “In the Blue Expanse” at its time was seen as a true romantic symbol of the revolutionary era. Unfortunately, contemporary viewers are little acquainted with the art of this prominent painter, author of both epic and majestic landscapes and intimate and touching images of the Russian nature.
The Russian Museum holds a large collection of works by A. Rylov including paintings and sketches of various periods, graphic works, and illustrations. A comprehensive retrospective exhibition at the St. Michael's Castle presents all stages of Rylov's path in art for the first time since his last solo exhibition in 1970. 100 art pieces are on display, among which are landscapes and historical and genre paintings from the collection of the Russian Museum, State Tretyakov Gallery, and other museums.
