Dreams of Universal Flowering

Pavel Filonov. Formula of the period from 1904 to July 1922 (Universal Shift into the Universal Flowering through the Russian Revolution). 1920-1922. Oil on canvas. State Russian Museum
14 september—20 november 2017

At the beginning of the XX century, Russia faced radical social changes which were reflected in the oeuvre of most of the artists of that period.

In 1900-1920s, especially after the Revolution of 1905, during the First World War and several years after the Revolution of 1917 the representatives of artistic and literary circles reacted differently on these historical events. The difference of the views lay not only in the variety of ways of depicting the same subjects. For example, in the middle of 1910-1920s, the avant-garde artists focused more on the formal novelty than on the social problems, while the figurative masters such as Repin, Serov, Grigoriev, and others emphasized the actual themes of these days remaining in more traditional forms. On the other hand, most of the artists of that epoch were dreaming of radical changes not only in Russia but all over the world.

The exhibition at the Russian Museum is aimed to present for the first time the complicated and multisided situation of the first decades of XX century. The exhibition will comprise around 100 artworks added by the historic documents and literary materials by the poets and writers of that period. 

The exhibition is opening at 4 PM.

The Flowers & Still Lifes of Alexander Benois Stetto

6 june 2014—22 june 2014

The name of Alexander Benois di Stetto (1896-1979), a member of the famous artistic dynasty of Benois - Serebryakov - Lanceray, was not widely known among the general public until quite recently. Eight years ago the Russian Museum initiated the Alexander Benois di Stetto: Return to Russia exhibition project, which contributed to the remembrance of this spectacular representative of Benois family and his impact to Russian and European art and culture at the turn of the 20th century.
