Russian art show on again – Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Art


 

The Exhibition “From Russia” will now open in London after a UK law to protect the works came into force. Russia gave official approval yesterday for a landmark exhibition of paintings to travel to London for display at the Royal Academy.

The Royal Academy now faces a race against time to open the From Russia exhibition on schedule. Let’s hope that the Academy will be able to open the exhibition on January 26.

In January 2008, the Royal Academy of Arts will stage a landmark exhibition presenting modern masterpieces drawn from Russia’s principal collections: the State Pushkin Museum and the State Tretyakov Museum in Moscow and the State Hermitage Museum and the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg. Over 120 paintings by Russian and French artists working between 1870 and 1925 will be displayed together for the first time ever in the United Kingdom in an exhibition which surveys the main directions of modern art from Realism and Impressionism to Non-Objective painting. Works will include paintings by Renoir, Cézanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin and Matisse together with those by Kandinsky, Tatlin and Malevich. This exhibition will be a unique opportunity to explore the fascinating exchange that existed between French and Russian art during a crucial period that was witness to
upheaval and revolution.
