NATURE IS A GREAT MAGICIAN

9 august 2007—26 august 2007
On 9 August the Stroganov Palace of the Russian Museum opens the Nature is a Great Magician! exhibition. The show comprises 74 colour photographs by Alex Volborth, a professor of geology, renowned expert in geochemistry, mineralogy and analytics (Dayton, Montana, USA). After the retirement Alex Volborth remembered that there are a lot of interesting views and odd surfaces seen on rocks, when he worked as a geologist. There are a lot of views in the world that remind us of paintings by Mikhail Vrubel, Marc Chagall, Wassily Kandinsky, Gustav Klimt, Salvador Dalí, Edvard Munch, sculpture and architecture. The aim of the exhibition is to show the beauty, variety and richness of natural representations found by the scientist in caves and on wind-worn rocks in the Mojave desert in southern Nevada. Travelling during three years he took 6000 photographs of these places. Some photographs are given the titles in honour of renowned photographers, philosophers, writers and book characters. This is the first ever comprehensive exhibition of photographs-associations by Alex Volborth in Russia.

Pavel Stroganov: Italian Journey

9 september—6 december 2021

Count Pavel Sergeevich Stroganov (1823-1911), traveling with his family in Italy in 1839-1841, captured the image of this country in numerous drawings, which were considered the works of an unknown master until recently. At the exhibition in the halls of the palace that belonged to the Stroganovs, the Russian Museum will show 60 wonderful drawings from its collection for the first time and comment in a multimedia show how their research was carried out, which made it possible to prove the authorship of Count Pavel Stroganov.
