One of the luminaries of the Russian visual arts, “the last of the Mohicans” as he was referred to by his contemporaries in the late 1960s, Nikolai Chernyshev lived a long life filled with great events and rich in artistic impressions. The beginning of the 20th century saw him move, with his family, from a remote region of the Russian Empire to Moscow. He displayed considerable enthusiasm for drawing, submitting his sketches for the entry examinations to the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture. When, to general surprise, he was accepted, he immersed himself passionately in his studies there.

Zurab Tsereteli’s Monument in the Heart of Paris

#2 2015 (47)

CHARLES DE GAULLE WROTE IN HIS "WAR MEMOIRS": "WITH EVERY STEP I TAKE THROUGH THE WORLD'S MOST REMARKABLE PLACES, I FEEL THAT THE GLORY OF THE PAST... RECONNECTS TO THAT OF THE PRESENT... IT FEELS LIKE HISTORY IS SMILING BACK AT US TODAY THROUGH ITS STONES AND CITY SQUARES." FOR 2,000 YEARS THE CITY OF PARIS HAS UNDERGONE A CONTINUOUS EVOLUTION FROM ROMAN SETTLEMENT TO MODERN WORLD CAPITAL, AND THROUGHOUT ITS HISTORY THE CITY HAS REMAINED LOYAL TO ITS PRINCIPLES. REJECTING LACK OF TALENT AT EVERY STAGE, IT ACCUMULATES THE MOST SIGNIFICANT AND EXCITING NEW FEATURES, GIVING PREFERENCE TO PERFECT ORDER AND BRILLIANCE. THE NEW MONUMENT BY ZURAB TSERETELI NEAR NOTRE-DAME CATHEDRAL IN PARIS IS FURTHER PROOF OF SUCH A TRADITION THAT HAS TURNED THE CITY INTO THE ARTISTIC CAPITAL OF THE WORLD. WHAT IS PARTICULARLY STRIKING IS THE PERFECT WAY THE NEW SCULPTURE FITS WITHIN THE FAMOUS ARCHITECTURAL ENSEMBLE AND ITS SURROUNDINGS.

150 Years Younger Than the Tretyakov Gallery

#1 2012 (34)

2012, a year rich in anniversaries, will finish with yet another memorial event, the 180th anniversary of the birth of Pavel Mikhailovich Tretyakov — the extraordinary individual who created the opportunity to come to a national art gallery and to evolve, thanks to it, into "a more Russian, more learned, freer individual".

A Romantic Master

The first winner of the Plastov International Prize Vladimir Telin, a People’s Artist of Russia, is the last surviving member of the “spectacular Moscow foursome” that emerged in the 1970s, which included Nikita Fedosov, Vyacheslav Zabelin, Vladimir Scherbakov and Telin himself. Telin’s transparent and comprehensive creative evolution and his personal artistic style represent an unexplored, versatile and life-affirming “continent” in the landscape of Russian art.

A National Treasure: The Russian Museum Marks its 110th Anniversary

#3 2008 (20)

Created in 1895 following an instruction from Tsar Nicholas II, the “Russian Museum of Emperor Alexander III” publicly opened to big fanfare on March 7 (19, in the Old Calendar) 1898. From the very start the museum became a unique collection of true masterpieces of Russian art and a centre of enlightenment. The backbone of the collection was formed by the works of St. Petersburg masters that rank among the greatest accomplishments of Russiaʼs national artistic culture.

Opening of the Mikhail Vrubel Room

#3 2007 (16)

The new design of the Vrubel room is just as important an event for the museum as the major anniversary exhibitions. The room first appeared in the Tretyakov Gallery as part of the reconstruction of the main building in Lavrushinsky Pereulok which took place from 1986–1995. It was specially designed and built in order to display works by one of Russia’s most outstanding artists at the turn of the 19th century, Mikhail Vrubel (1856–1910). Thanks to the generous financial support of Viktor Vekselberg it has been possible to undertake the present reconstruction of the room to celebrate the anniversary of the artist’s birth.

Tsereteli in Paris. Le dernier grand style

#3 2007 (16)

In one of its halls the Unesco Headquarters in Paris has a splendid work by Miro, a mosaic wall of rare beauty and harmony with perfect composition, rhythm and colour. The exhibition of Zurab Tsereteli’s works held there during May 2007 included this room as well, a great honour and also a great challenge for an artist. To hold your own next to this masterpiece by Miro is no easy matter. And in general to exhibit your works in Paris, where everything, Notre Dame and the Sainte Chapelle, the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, the memorial museums of Rodin and Picasso and the very town itself vibrate with art, and where all periods and styles and all major artists are present. You have the feeling that any moment now Degas, Van Gogh, Cezanne or Matisse might come and sit down at your table. So to be counted one of their equals is something very few modern artists could ever hope for.

These were the Tretyakov Gallery Deputy Director Lydia Iovleva, Head of the Graphic Art Department Evgenia Plotnikova and Manuscripts Department Senior Expert Natalia Priymak.

The Academy of Arts and the “Wanderers”

#1 2007 (14)

Before the emergence of the Wanderer artists, or Peredvizhniki, all aspects of Russian art – the education and work of professional artists, their rank, title, rights and position in society – were directly connected with the Academy of Arts. When, in the 1860s, a group of former Academy students established the St. Petersburg Artel of Artists, a distinct, independent union, their work nevertheless continued to be exhibited in the Academy, and the majority of the group eventually became academicians: the world of Russian art was, in those days, organised around a single pole.
