Exhibition “The World of Childhood in Russian Fine Art”




Exhibition period: May 28 - July 18, 2021

Location: Polenov's Dacha of the Museum-Reserve “Abramtsevo”



An exhibition “The World of Childhood in Russian Fine Art” has opened at the Museum-Reserve. The exposition presents 32 works of painting and graphics of the 19th - early 20th centuries from the funds of the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus. They are organically complemented by works by Russian artists from the collection of the State Historical, Artistic and Literary Museum-Reserve “Abramtsevo”.

The exposition includes works by Vasily Tropinin, Ivan Khrutsky, Vasily Perov, Viktor Vasnetsov, Elena Polenova, Nikolay Bogdanov-Belsky and many others. The exhibition is organized as part of an agreement between the two museums, signed in 2019 in St. Petersburg at the Sixth Forum of Russian and Belarusian Regions.

The true discovery of the personality of the child, the peculiarities of his psychology, took place in Russian culture only in the first half of the 19th century, in the era of romanticism. Artists working at that time in the genre of a child's portrait strove for naturalness and emancipation in the interpretation of images, with pleasure they emphasized the “childishness” in the appearance and behavior of their heroes. At the same time, a cult of the family and family virtues was developing in Russian society, and images of a mother surrounded by children became popular.

In the second half of the 19th century, under the influence of democratic tendencies, the children's theme in art acquired a social connotation. Children from the poorest classes became the main characters in the paintings of the artists of the 1860s and 80s. Artists often used the childish image in order to increase the incriminating power of their works.

In painting at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, artists often combine genres; in such works, children are both a symbol and a conductor of an enthusiastic and enchanted perception of life.

The ability to compare different points of view on the personality of the child and the theme of childhood is the main advantage of the exhibition.

The works presented on it are designed to remind the viewer that a child at all times is a significant symbol of the unbrokenness of being, and therefore the eternity of the world.

The collection of the magazine was formed from the gifts of the artists.

At the Abramtsevo exhibition of new acquisitions, an attempt was made to demonstrate this unique collection in volume.

Exhibition “Green Oak Near the Lukomorye”





Exhibition period: October 10 - November 8, 2020

Location: Polenov's Dacha of the Museum-Reserve “Abramtsevo”


October 10, 2020 the exhibition “Green Oak Near the Lukomorye Natalia Litvina (graphics) and Kirill Mamonov (painting)” was opened in the Polenovskoy dacha of the Abramtsevo Museum-Reserve.

The name of the exhibition was chosen by the artist Kirill Mamonov in memory of Natalia Litvina's fabulous talent.

Natalya Litvina (1937-1995) was born in Moscow, worked at the Soyuzmultfilm film studio, graduated from Moscow State University with a degree in art, joined the Union of Artists of the USSR, was the wife of Kirill Mamonov and gave birth to his son Bogdan, participated with him (and personally) in exhibitions... Her works are kept in private collections in Russia and abroad.

The exhibition features twenty-nine colored linocut by Natalya Litvina of the 1980s and early 1990s - bright and full in color, decorative and ornamental. In them, one can easily guess the proximity to the popular print, Gorodets donets, Filimonov's clay toy.

“In the artist's drawings, as in folk art, innocence, sly humor, wisdom, trust in the world of simple human feelings and actions, where good will never turn into evil, are organically combined” (A. Denisov).

Kirill Mamonov chose for the exposition in Abramtsevo not only the fabulous works of Natalia Litvina, but also the “Garden” of her flowers. The artist's soul was joyful. This is how she remained in the bizarre portraits of flowers.

Being a well-known graphic artist in Moscow, Kirill Mamonov decided to present his painting at the exhibition. The motives of his painting are unassuming, devoid of plot lines. The melancholy of provincial life, special northern landscapes and characters clearly not enjoying life.

“The distinct theme of these works, of the artist's entire work, is the tragedy of everyday life, the horror of a catastrophically unspiritualized being. That is why, despite the seemingly complete absence of “socially significant” subjects, he is seen as a highly social artist.

As few Kirill Mamonov is unconditionally loyal to himself. He still lives in the same overstrained and unhappy world, and stubborn stoicism remains the unbending core of his art. The excitement and sophistication of Kirill Mamonov's works merges him with the classics of Russian literature from Nikolai Gogol and Mikhail Saltykov-Shchedrin to Andrey Platonov and Venedikt Erofeev,” Yuri Gerchuk wrote about the artist in 2013.

It turns out that the exhibition is built on an emotional and, therefore, plastic contrast. Yes, and only at first glance.

An open, merciless look into the artist's life reconciles Mamonov with its tragedy and gives glimpses of luminous harmony. At this moment, painting acquires continuity and overcomes the pain of the grotesque. This is the thought of Yuri Norshtein, and the viewer is given a unique opportunity to see his painting (Natalia Litvina, 1968).

Exhibition “Chekhov's World”

It became possible thanks to a cooperation agreement between the two museums. The current exposition is a reciprocal step, earlier this year in Donetsk there was also a joint exhibition “Savva Mamontov - an Entrepreneur and a Patron of Arts”, where historical photographs from the funds of Abramtsevo were presented.

Young artists fully succeeded in refined female images of sisters Irina, Maria, Olga from the play “Three Sisters” and Anna Sergeevna, the main character of the story “Lady with a Dog ”, they turned out to be weightless and very graceful in their drawings. The guys portrayed animals with amazing touching: an old she-wolf and a puppy White-fronted from the story “White-Fronted”, a cheerful and faithful Kashtanka with new circus friends, a playful white spitz.

The exhibition clearly shows that the two museums, despite the geographical distance separating them, exist in a single cultural field of great Russian literature.

1966-1978 - the head of the theater department of the Moscow State Art University in memory of 1905, graduated more than 100 students.

Has released six collections of poetry.

“Dialogue with Malevich” is the title of the exhibition of paintings by Tatyana Selvinskaya, which unites the series “Dialogue with Malevich”, “Rhythms of Life”, “The Artist”, “Three Art”. The paintings were painted in 2019-2020.

Kazimir Malevich (1879−1935) - the founder of Suprematism, a direction in painting that arose in the 1910s in Russia. Suprematism is an art that has replaced Cubism. If the transmission of the three-dimensionality of nature by schematized volumes was called cubiz, then to depict nature suprematistically meant taking only colors from it, enclosing them in a two-dimensional plane and emphasizing the independence of color with simple forms (square, circle, triangle). “Supremus” is excellent, which, according to the Suprematists, equated to the domination of painting over nature.

Tatiana Selvinskaya treats her non-objective compositions not as a symbol, but as an artistic form. Malevich's plastic experience at some stage seemed interesting to her in solving colorful problems. Simple shapes: straight and round planes, without any content, help Selvinskaya to be free in the art of color.

The canvases of the “Dialogue with Malevich” polyptych (2019) are built in a pure pictorial rhythm (not to be confused with intellectual rhythm, the question “what?” does not work in this case). The artist conveys the movement of the color mass (rainbow) and operates with the language of color forms, which in itself is close to Suprematism. Selvinskaya reveals her own law of consonance of forms and colors, her own version of the gravitation of forms and colors to each other, the dependence of one on the other, harmony, rhythm and contrasts.

In the series "The Artist", "Rhythms of Life", "Three Art" (2020), balancing on the brink of non-objectiveness, Selvinskaya also leaves the path of storytelling. Not a real object or phenomenon in nature, as it is or was in reality, but a brilliant colorful scale that sounds like music, and a compositional rhythm that awakens the associative imagination, are offered by the artist to the viewer.

Tatiana Selvinskaya is inclined to aphorisms, and once she said: “My great predecessors - Korovin, Golovin, Serov - brought painting to the theater. I bring the THEATER into painting”.

Selvinskaya's painting easily and simply “plays the theater”, because by its very nature, in its very beginnings, it is theatrical. It can be said differently: the theater of Selvinskaya never existed separately from her easel creativity, was not the periphery of painting, but its continuation and natural development. In the same way, the theater has always been part of the artist's painting: by no means only by plots and themes, but by its essence and nature.

The most recent series of paintings is no exception. They are “theatrical” in their plastic essence. And here's another thing to say... The freer Selvinskaya feels in her own world, the more expressively and individually her painting declares itself, the more and more the art of other masters and other eras approaches her.

The artist's path to himself is at the same time the path to world art. At the same time, Tatyana Selvinskaya (Tata, as her father Ilya Selvinsky lovingly called her, followed by all good friends) does not quote, does not copy, does not imitate masterpieces. Here is a dialogue, here is imagination, and most importantly - here is the artist's world, ready to accommodate the worlds of other creators.











Exhibition “Self-Portrait”




Self-portrait hall in the exhibition “Abramtsevo. Art of the XX century” did not arise by chance. It is this genre that firmly and strongly declared itself in Abramtsevo's contemporary collections of painting, graphics, and engravings. Abramtsevo artists - our contemporaries - transferred (and are transferring) their self-portraits to the collection. A similar process was (and is) observed in the Uffizi Gallery (Florence). In addition to the masterpieces of the Renaissance masters, the Uffizi is famous for its collection of self-portraits, which is located in the so-called “Vasari Corridor” and has about 1,500 paintings. The collection was started in the 17th century by Cardinal Leopoldo Medici. An art lover and philanthropist, he bought for the museum a large collection of self-portraits of old masters that were kept in the Roman Academy of St. Luke. For several centuries, the collection has been constantly replenished.

The main source of renewal of the collection was, of course, the artists themselves. Sometimes the management of the Uffizi through the Florentine Academy of Arts ordered them to write a self-portrait for the gallery. It was an honor for an artist to receive such an order. But more often the artists themselves presented their self-portraits as a gift to the museum, realizing that getting into the Uffizi collection means getting into eternity (in the human mind). It is joyful and proud that among the luminaries of painting in the “Vasari Corridor” there are also Russian names: Orest Kiprensky, Ivan Aivazovsky, Boris Kustodiev, Alexey Isupov, Viktor Ivanov, and others. Among the Abramtsevo artists are Andrey Lysenko and Nikolai Romadin. There is an essay “On a Self-Portrrait” by Nikolai Andronov. The essay was published in the catalog “Nikolay Andronov. 1929-1998. Exhibition of works from the collections of the State Tretyakov Gallery and the artist's family. On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of his birth”.

These self-portraits speak volumes. They acquaint with the spiritual image of the authors, their creative temperament appears before us in artistic evidence, which is difficult to translate into verbal language, and the artist's creative concept in a self-portrait becomes the most vivid, as if helping to read the aesthetic aspirations of the time (era).

There are many methods and ways of working on a self-portrait: by means of a mirror (Boris Ioganson, Evgeny Katsman, Nikolay Kuzmin), a complex composition composition (Viktor Popkov, Kirill Mamonov, Valentina Kutsevich), according to imagination (Sergey Goryaev, Maria Andronova) or free imagination (Natalya Egorshina, Andrey Krasulin).

The relationship between the psychologism of the portrait and its possible documentary fidelity is expressed in the self-portraits by Viktor Kukol, Alexander Berezin, Tatyana Malyukova.

Self-portraits by Leonid Pisarev are dissimilar to each other (externally). The secret of this dissimilarity lies in deep analysis, in the artist's striving for psychological certainty. The very external dissimilarity opens the tendency of a continuous search for the truth, and not the elementary plausibility of the fact.

The romantic ideal, sublime dreaminess and vitality are embodied in the self-portrait of Alexey Shmarinov. In it, a still young artist (a self-portrait of the 1950s) expressed a synthesis of his aesthetic and spiritual aspirations, in him - the temperament of hobbies and thirst for perfection of the great masters of the past.

Fantasy, imagination and visual memory - in the self-portraits of Nikolay Sokolov, Vitaly Goryaev, Alexander Pervukhin. As well as the subtlest psychological characteristics, a variety of pictorial situations.

In Yevgenia Maleina's self-portrait, life, everyday characteristics are in natural unity with the transmission of the poetic world. The exciting expression of a wonderful talent is reflected in the self-portrait of Mikhail Ivanov.











Exposition “Abramtsevo. Arts of the 20th century”




The exposition “Abramtsevo. Arts of the 20th century” presents the works of artists who worked in Abramtsevo and creatively associated with it. These are the works of the members of the Jack of Diamonds union (Pyotr Konchalovsky, Aristarkh Lentulov, Ilya Mashkov, Alexander Osmerkin, Vasily Rozhdestvensky, Robert Falk), as well as Nikolay Andronov, Andrey Vasnetsov, Igor Grabar, Semyon Chuikov, Evgenia Maleina, Dementy Shmarinov, Alexey Shmarinov, Natalia Udaltsova, sculptors Vera Mukhina, Boris Korolyov and others.

Many of these artists lived and worked in the village of Artists, founded in the 1930s near the estate, on the opposite bank of the Vorya River.

The artistic wealth created in Abramtsevo over the time of the century is now collected in the white stone building "Abramtsevo. Arts of the 20th century”.
