21 may 2015—24 august 2015
The ground floor rooms of the Stroganov palace will house the exhibition of art works by the prominent St. Petersburg artist Alexander Agabekov. The exhibition will comprise over 130 pieces of art in painterly and graphic technique, collages and art objects.

Agabekov's art is characterized by the urge to experiment connected with respect to tradition. The highest degree of mastery in performing art pieces is revealed in spectacular sophistication of juxtaposing colors and arranging rhythms and motifs as well as combining oriental ornament patterns with experiments of avant-garde artists of early XX-th century.

Alexander Agabekov gained wide public recognition in 1960-s due to his series of lithographs which reflected the major outline of his artistic manner with its monumentality of forms, clearness of silhouettes and figures, fineness of local colors and delicate lyricism of motifs. The further development of his style led to the new emotional interpretation of subjects and expressive enhancement of colors. Today his art works are as laconic and complete in their expressiveness as pieces of folk culture. All these characteristic features are visible in Agabekov's watercolors, illuminated autolithographs and paintings as well as in his collages, made in the individual author's technique.

Mikhail Shvartsman (1926-1997) is one of the few Russian artists of the after-war period who are claimed equal to the masters of the avant-garde epoch. His fame created around him a myth that prostrates far beyond his actual biography and academic art historic research.
