Maxim Vorobyov. Huts in Nikolskoye Village. 1812. Watercolour, Indian ink, brush and pen on paper
24 January—22 April 2024

Maxim Vorobyov (1787–1855) is the greatest master of the national landscape school of the first half of the 19th century. Alongside with his work as an artist he taught art at the Imperial Academy of Arts for more than fifty years and trained a whole generation of painters in various genres.

The exhibition features lesser-known drawings and watercolours by Maxim Vorobyov and his students including the artist’s son Sokrat Vorobyov (1817–1888). These are views of the garden at the Russian Embassy in Istanbul and unique views of the estate of the famous architect Nikolai Lvov near Torzhok produced by Maxim Vorobyov. Among the students’ works of particular interest are the drawings by Mikhail Lebedev (1811–1837), watercolours by Vasily Sternberg (1818–1845) and Mikhail Elson (1816–1857) from his Italian period, as well as watercolours by Nikanor Chernetsov (1805–1879) made in the Caucasus and Crimea. The work of Vasily Sadovnikov (1800–1879), one of the most prolific watercolourists of the mid-19th century, is represented by rare views of Pargolovo near St Petersburg, and the cities of Vilna and Revelle.

The exhibition is held in the Academic Halls (#14, 15), Mikhailovsky Palace.
