The plastic decision of the works still retained the forms of figurative painting. Filonov turned to abstract art in the early 1920s. Though the works of the late 1920s-30s were marked by the stylistic diversity of execution. The years of political repressions (1930s) were a gloomy period in the artist-s life. His art was officially neglected. Pavel Filonov died of starvation in the besieged Leningrad on December 3, 1941.The artistic heritage of Filonov was saved and preserved by his sister Yevdokia Glebova.

The Leningrad Rock Club in Photographs. Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Its Opening

28 december 2020—10 june 2021

The Leningrad Rock Club was established in early 1981 and has become a true center of attraction for musicians whose art did not fit into the Soviet cultural framework. The Leningrad Rock Club was a sign of the era of upcoming changes in the country and even now, after forty years, it is hardly needed to explain what was its role in the cultural and social life of Leningrad and, more broadly, the country.
