Lev Yudin: My Own Voice

Lev Yudin. Still life. Coffeepot, pitcher and a sugar bowl. Mid-1930s. Oil on canvas.
13 may—28 june 2021
Lev Yudin is known today to a greater extent due to his belonging to Kazimir Malevich's circle. Indeed, meeting the Teacher had a "formative" effect on his destiny. However, Yudin also earned his own place in history: he grew into an independent, deep and versatile master who managed to “say his own word” in art. This "own" could have become even more pronounced. However, some of the promising creative paths outlined by Lev Yudin (for example, the path close to the OBERIU artists, or the movement towards surrealism), due to the conditions of the time, broke off at the very beginning. The artist's life was short, and many of his works were lost.
The exposition reflects all periods of the master's development. These are cubist and suprematist experiments associated with Vitebsk Unovis and Leningrad Ginkhuk, “strange” graphics of the late 1920s and grotesque everyday life images of the early 1930s, plastic realism (with surrealist “amendments”) of pictorial still lives and landscapes of the second half of the thirties, combining a skill to “build” with the desire to “experience”. Finally, there is a free, liberated drawing of the pre-war years, conveying the continuity of life and its natural course.
The exhibition features illustrations for children's books and magazines, carving prints, linocut prints, perfume sketches, unique photographs of paper sculptures and archival materials. The exposition includes works from state (Russian Museum, Tretyakov Gallery, State Museum "Tsarskoye Selo Collection") and private collections.

The exhibition is supported by Elena Lisina and Alexander Saprykin.

I Am Dostoevsky. To the 200th Anniversary of the Writer’s Birth

13 november 2021—14 february 2022

The F.M.Dostoevsky Literary-Memorial Museum presents an exhibition to the 200th anniversary of the writer.

The exhibition is based on paintings from the imaginary "ideal museum of the writer", which were especially significant for Dostoevsky throughout his life. He did not miss a single exhibition in St. Petersburg, in Europe he got acquainted with the main museums and galleries, he knew the Dresden Gallery, the Pitti Palace, the Uffizi almost by heart. He considered Raphael's Sistine Madonna one of the greatest masterpieces, admired the landscapes of Claude Lorrain, the gates of the Florentine Baptistery, Saint Agatha by Sebastiano del Piombo, Penitent Magdalene by Batoni, this list is pretty extensive.
