This is a research exhibition about the largest display of Russian painting, sculpture and graphics by hundreds of the best authors in the United States. Almost a hundred years later, we will show more than 70 iconic works from museum collections and private collections in Russia and the world, including from the Albertina Gallery in Vienna.
In 1924, more than 1000 works were presented at the Exhibition of Russian Art in New York. The American tour involved the sale of works, so the artists sent their best creations overseas. Among the buyers were designer Louis Comfort Tiffany, businessman Charles Crane, Fedor Chaliapin and Sergei Rachmaninov.
Over time, the works were scattered across different countries. The museum has found many of them in the collections of many countries: from the USA, Canada and Switzerland to Armenia and Tajikistan. In Russia, the paintings were scattered from Khabarovsk to Rostov-on-Don.
This large, almost detective research promises to be one of the largest projects of the museum. Art critics have managed to establish the fate of several hundred works, some of which have been rediscovered for the audience. The exhibition will include works by Lev Bakst, Igor Grabar, Boris Grigoriev, Mikhail Larionov, Ilya Mashkov, Pyotr Konchalovsky, Boris Kustodiev, Zinaida Serebryakova and other artists.
The exhibition project "Hypotheses" will continue the research topic. The third floor of the museum will house the works of Viktor and Apollinarius Vasnetsov, Stanislav Zhukovsky, Boris Kustodiev and other artists whose participation in the overseas epic is still in question.
Some of the works cannot yet be brought to Russia. Information about them will be published in an expanded catalog along with archival photographs and analytical materials.
