The main goal of the Russian landscape paintings exhibition dedicated to Ivan Turgenev’s 200th anniversary is to look at the Russian nature through the eyes of both – the classic of European literature and of modern artists; thus demonstrating an obvious artistic continuity. Landscape paintings that we have selected for the exhibition are not and should not be considered illustrations of Turgenev’s landscape sketches. These are independent works of our contemporaries, surprisingly consonant with the vision of the great writer in terms of perception of the beauty of the world around.
The exhibition contains 30 landscape paintings that are fitted into special panels along with quotes with Turgenev’s landscape descriptions in four languages. It is worth mentioning that most of the poems were translated from Russian especially for this project.
We hope that our exhibition can become another “window” through which Europeans will be able to see the beauty of Russian nature and feel the beauty of the Russian soul.
