Fyodor Dostoevsky in the Fine Arts from the State Russian Museum Collection. On the 200th Anniversary of the Writer’s Birth

14 october—15 november 2021

The exhibition was prepared for the 200th anniversary of one of the most famous and frequently cited Russian writers - Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (1821-1881).
His training at the Engineering School (in the 1840s), located in the Mikhailovsky (Engineering) Castle (now a branch of the Russian Museum), is an excellent occasion for the Russian Museum to pay tribute to the memory of one of the authors of the Petersburg myth by presenting an exposition of works from the museum collection in honor of this anniversary.

The exhibition at the Russian Museum brings together the works of Italian and Russian futurists, which allow a viewer to witness the originality of each of the two national versions of this large-scale creative movement. The fundamental works of Italian futurism are shown in dialogue with the iconic works of Russian masters. This will provide an opportunity to see their similarities and differences and deeper perceive the era of avant-garde experiments that swept across Europe.
