An exhibition of works by Zinaida Serebryakova from the collection of the State Russian Museum was opened in the Parade Hall of the Primorskaya State Art Gallery. For the first time in Vladivostok, it presents forty-three works by the artist.
The new exhibition features well-known and rarely showcased paintings and graphic works by Zinaida Serebryakova - from early works created in Russia to canvases of the Paris period. Besides the exhibits provided by the State Russian Museum, the exposition includes the painting "Tata and Katya Serebryakovs", donated by the famous Far Eastern scientist Alexander Sergeevich Kleschev to the Primorskaya State Art Gallery in 2017.
The art of Zinaida Serebryakova, a student of Ilya Repin and Osip Braz, is defined by a variety of themes and plots, refined lyricism and psychologism.
The Russian Museum obtains one of the largest collections of the artist. It comprises 60 paintings and about 200 graphic works displaying all stages of the artist's oeuvre. The State Russian Museum had been forming the collection of Serebryakova's works throughout the master's life. The museum made the first acquisitions in 1911 at the famous "World of Art Association" exhibition. Other sources were the collections of the artist's children - Tatyana and Evgeny Serebryakovs and purchase from a personal Leningrad exhibition in 1966.
The exhibition will run until May 30.
