Silvester Schedrin (1791–1830) is a prominent master of Russian landscape of romanticism epoch. He was one of the first masters who started making landscapes directly from nature, reflecting the vision of the air and light and the idea of the unity of man and nature. His works were highly praised by the contemporaries and heirs, becoming the classics of the Russian school of landscape painting.
From 1818 till the very death Schedrin lived in Italy and sent the works he made there to the motherland. While working in Rome and Naples and their environs Schedrin communicated with local artists and influenced the southern-Italian landscape school (so called Posillipo school)… that united various artists from Italy, Germany and Holland (Antonis Pitloo, Giacinto Gigante and others).
The exhibition comprises around 100 pieces of art by Schedrin and painters of Posillipo school from the Russian Museum and other museum collections. The exhibition presents the oeuvre of this brilliant representative of Russian landscape school together with paintings of his European contemporaries – landscape painters.
