Vladimir Lyubarov. The Land of Peremilovo. Oil Paintings of Russian Origin

Vladimir Lyubarov. Choir. 2005. Oil on canvas. 80 x 100 cm
18 april 2018—17 june 2018
A solo exhibition of works by Vladimir Lyubarov will showcase around 70 paintings from various series which the artist has been working on since he moved from Moscow to Peremilovo village, the Vladimir Region, in the early 1990s. Lyubarov, who used to be a well-known book illustrator, art director of the “Khimiya i Zhizn” (Chemistry and Life) magazine and “Text” publishing house, is now a painter of the Russian far-flung province and its inhabitants. His scenes from popular life could make up a reference book for the study of the national character. They have already become a source for contemporary fables, theater plays, and animated films. Vladimir Lyubarov’s world of images is both real and fantastic at the same time. This world, brought into being by the artist’s creative imagination, is full of recognizable details and, in the meantime, quite spiced up with some grotesque humor, as in the best traditions of the Russian popular print, lubok. In Lyubarov’s work, subtle psychologism and attention to detail are artfully combined with the ingenuous expressiveness of naïve art and high professionalism of a skillful painter.

Mikhail Makhayev’s St Petersburg

14 october 2022—16 january 2023

The sketches and drawings of Mikhail Makhayev (1717–1770), the great Russian 18th-century veduta master, are the only way we have of appreciating St Petersburg’s stately appearance during the mid-18th century. The exhibition features approximately 100 works: Mikhail Makhayev’s drawings, engravings, and paintings made from his drawings by Russian and Western European artists, as well as the engraved copper plates used to print St Petersburg city views in the mid-18th century.

Naum Mogilevsky. Sculptures and Drawings

Naum Mogilevsky. Sculptures and Drawings

6 october—12 december 2022

Naum Mogilevsky was one of the most outstanding artists of the circle that gravitated around the great sculptor and artistic mentor Alexander Matveyev. And yet his work has received very little scholarly attention and is practically unknown to many art lovers. This exhibition, including approximately 30 sculptures and 40 drawings, invites the audience to rediscover a forgotten master and explore the many facets of his talent.
