January 18, 2019 at 16-00 in the Kaluga Museum of Fine Arts (Lenin St., 103, IEC, second floor) will open the exhibition of works by Moscow artist Ivan Vasilyevich Sorokin "Springs of Pushkin places" from the collection of I.N. Khotinsky.
Ivan Vasilievich Sorokin (1922-2004) - a recognized domestic master, representative of the Moscow school of painting, academician of the Russian Academy of Arts, laureate of the State Prize of the RSFSR named after I.E. Repin, People’s Artist of the RSFSR.
Ivan Sorokin made his first steps in art at the famous secondary art school on Kalyaevskaya Street with the teacher V.V. Pochitalov, whose students were such significant domestic painters as Heliy Korzhev, Vladimir Stozharov, Efrem Zverkov, Victor Ivanov, Valentin Sidorov and others. In the summer of 1942, Sorokin was drafted into the army, but two years later with the front line he was recalled to the Grebkov Studio of Military Artists. At the end of the war, the master studied at the Moscow State Art Institute (now the Moscow Art Theater named after V.I. Surikov) in the workshop of S.V. Gerasimov, thanks to which the impeccable taste and artistic skill of Ivan Sorokin developed. Great interest in the work and personality of Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin resulted in the creation of a series of works “On Pushkin Places”, for which in 1988 the artist received a silver medal of the USSR Academy of Arts, in 1999 a gold medal, and later he was invited to participate in numerous exhibitions, dedicated to the 200th anniversary of the poet.
The exhibition of Ivan Sorokin’s works “The Springs of Pushkin Places” includes sketches and sketches with views of St. Petersburg and its environs, Mikhailovsky, Boldin and other places related to the life of A. Pushkin. Sorokin admitted to Yuri Bychkov, his biographer: “When I became better acquainted with Pushkin, the love for all my relatives became deeper. Each line of the poet for me is a call to work. It is worth saying: “Oh, the sky breathed in the fall,” - I am painting, I feel the paint. ” The compositions presented at the exhibition are made with lead pencil, felt-tip pens, watercolors, oils and demonstrate a high level of skill of the artist. The artist creates many watercolor sketches: light, separate, saturated strokes cover the paper with a transparent color, shining through like fragments of glass in a stained-glass window. Behind the apparent ease of execution hides the author’s systematic purposeful work, masterly possession of a spatial living line, expressive imagery of interpretation. The work of Ivan Vasilievich Sorokin occupies an important place in the domestic art of the twentieth century. The artist’s works are in the collections of the State Tretyakov Gallery, the Russian Museum, as well as in private and museum collections in Russia and the world.
The exhibition runs until March 3, 2019.
