The jubilee exhibition dedicated to Mikhail Shvartsman will include 30 painterly works from the Russian Museum and private collections. Apart from them his graphic works, posters and trademark designs are of specific interest. This anniversary exhibition is aimed to provide opportunity of reflecting upon his lifelong oeuvre. 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. To Shvartsman painting has always been “a prayer in act”, an attempt to express metaphysical feelings and concepts. His notion of the world arrangement, the place of art in it is reflected in his works, his personality and ascetic way of life.
