On the exhibition of artworks by Saint Petersburg sculptor Sergei Borisov 10 abstract sculpture compositions made of metal, steel and composite material in 1999-2008 are presented.
Sergei Borisov is working with abstract forms successively and for a long time. His sculpture strives to express inner significance of things, relations and senses by means of its “pure” fluent form.
Original forms-signs substantiate now abstract ideas and significances (“Vector”, “Spiral”, “Yes-No”, “Fluidity”), now nature, its calamities and elements (“Iron Wind”, “Trans-Cloud”, “Fossil”), now emotional tension of relations and passions (“Hunting for Whales”, “Go Away”). Sculptures made of different material — from traditional (metal and stone) to modern plastic — give opportunities not only for experimenting with colour and texture diversity of surfaces, but even with inner lighting of sculptural forms.

This exhibition offers visitors the rare opportunity to appreciate the more interesting and notable specimens of 18th century drawing and watercolour from the museum’s extensive collection. Because of their fragility, these works are seldom presented for public viewing.

The sketches and drawings of Mikhail Makhayev (1717–1770), the great Russian 18th-century veduta master, are the only way we have of appreciating St Petersburg’s stately appearance during the mid-18th century. The exhibition features approximately 100 works: Mikhail Makhayev’s drawings, engravings, and paintings made from his drawings by Russian and Western European artists, as well as the engraved copper plates used to print St Petersburg city views in the mid-18th century.
The collection of masterpieces, chosen by the Russian Museum will allow you to make a first impression of the collection of the Russian Museum.
