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.
