 From the collection of Voronezh Regional Art Museum of I.N. Kramskoy

 June 4 – July 30. Exhibition space: Museum of I.N. Kramskoy

 

Sergey Romanovich. "Boat in the storm"

The retrospective exhibition explores work of Sergey Romanovich from the makovchane period (1920s) when he was influenced by the Russian cosmism theory to the paintings created in 1950-1960s, somewhat polemical towards world artistic legacy of the past.

Romanovich graduated from Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture and became of the founders of Voronezh Free State Art Workshop and worked in this city for ten years. It was in Voronezh where he created his first paintings on religious themes: picturesque parables of Job, the Winegrowers, the Prodigal Son and the Good Samaritan - stories from the Bible and the gospels.

 The exhibition is organized exclusively for the Platonov Arts Festival. It will also include some works from the private collection of A.A. Bubnov, president of the charity foundation “Artists of Voronezh”. The exhibition is curated by Vladimir Dobromirov, an art historian, director of Voronezh Regional Art Museum of I.N. Kramskoy.

 

Many exhibitions are connected with the festival’s main theme – work and time of Andrey Platonov. Vsevolod Meyerhold (1874-1940), Alexander Tyshler (1898-1980) and Sergey Romanovich (1894-1968) were the contemporaries of the renowned Russian writer the festival is named after.

 The Platonov Arts Festival has been held in Voronezh for six years. Over this time, a number of museums have presented their collections here, including the State Tretyakov Gallery, State Russian Museum, Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, A.A. Bakhrushin State Central Theatre Museum, Multimedia Art Museum among many others. There have been held solo exhibitions of Pavel Filonov, Aleksander Deyneka, David Borovsky and contemporary artists Vladimir Dubossarsky, Alexander Shishkin-Hokusai, Emil Kapelush, Alexander Petrov, Sergey Bazilev and many others.
