Artists of the Society of Russian Sculptors

Wassily Vatagin. The Tiger. 1927. State Russian Museum
10 august 2017—20 november 2017

The artists' union “Society of Russian Sculptors” (ORS – Obschestvo Russkih Skulptorov) was created in 1925 in the course of revolutionary events and construction of new culture in Russia. The main objective of this society was to unite all Russian sculptural forces, to find new plastic expression and preserve the accumulated sculptural traditions of Russian and Europe culture in art. 

The society had included practically all famous Russian sculptors of the first half of the XX century: Anna Golubkina, Sergei Konyonkov, Vera Mukhina, Sarra Lebedeva, Nathan Altman, Vladimir Domogatsky, Wassily Vatagin, Stepan Erzia and many others. This exhibition from the collection of the Russian Museum reveals a fascinating large-scale picture of creative pursuits of Russian masters, many of whom studied in Paris with Auguste Rodin and Emile Antoine Bourdelle.

The exhibition includes about 60 sculptures of various artists of the Society of Russian Sculptors, one of the leading creative associations of the 1920s in Soviet Russia.
