HUSSEIN ALIEV. 1911-1991

27 october 2011—16 january 2012

The exhibition presents the creative oeuvre of Hussein Aliev (1911-1991), the People's Artist of Azerbaijan, who is recognized on homeland as one of the founders of the contemporary art in his country. Having received the high professional education in Leningrad in the Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture named after I.Repin, Hussein Aliev returned to Azerbaijan where he lived and worked till his death. The exposition of the exhibition devoted to the 100th artist's anniversary includes 60 water colors and monotypes of the 1960-1980's from the private collection.

The nature of native land was always the main source of inspiration for Hussein Aliev who had the exceptional susceptibility for the beauty of the world surrounding. It is no mere chance that the unusual gift of artist who successfully worked in different genres was so brightly revealed in the sphere of romantic landscape. The color decision of his works charming by its rhythm, musicality and subtleness finds its sources in the discoveries of the Russian and foreign avant-garde of the beginning of the 20th century as well as in the many-aged artistic heritage of the Azerbaijan people. Transformation of the reality into the decorative symphony of bright and concentrated colors helps the author to recreate the symbolic image of the universe fulfilled by powerful space energy in every single motive.           

The exhibition is supported by the Administration of St. Petersburg, the Representation of the Fund of Heidar Aliev in the Russian Federation and the Consulate General of the Republic of Azerbaijan in St. Petersburg.
