March 28, 2019 at 16.00 hours in the exhibition hall of the Voronezh Regional Art Museum. I.N. Kramsky will host the opening of the exhibition ILYA GLAZUNOV.
The exhibition of works by Ilya Sergeyevich Glazunov introduces the audience to the painting of the great Russian artist of the second half of the 20th – beginning of the 21st century. Winner of numerous honorary titles and awards, winning popular love and recognition far beyond the borders of his native country, he became a classic even during his lifetime.
The exhibition will present more than thirty paintings from the collection of the Art Gallery Ilya Glazunov (Moscow). The exhibition covers a wide period of the artist’s biography: from paintings of the 1960s to the latest works of the master, made in the 2010s. A separate section of the exhibition is devoted to photographs depicting moments of I.S. Glazunov.
The first personal exhibition of I.S. Glazunov in Voronezh took place in 1990. 30 years later, on the eve of the 90th anniversary of the artist’s birthday, residents of the city and those who have long known and loved his work, once again have the opportunity to see the artist’s paintings.
The creative range of I.S. Glazunov unusually wide. A brilliant painter and graphic artist, who worked in many genres, he also made a significant contribution to the national scenography, created and implemented architectural projects. His talent manifested itself not only in the visual arts, but also in the gift of words: speeches in the media, articles and books, the most significant of which is the two-volume historical-biographical work “Crucified Russia”. Monumental paintings by I.S. Glazunov “Eternal Russia”, “The Mystery of the XX Century”, “The Great Experiment”, “The Routing of the Temple on Easter Night”, “The Market of Our Democracy” and “Discretion”, reflecting the philosophy of the patriotic artist and his understanding of the events of the world, but above all national history.
I.S. Glazunov died on July 9, 2017, but his art does not lose its relevance, it continues to live and excite the viewer, which is confirmed by all the new exhibitions of his works. There is hardly an artist in Russian art who has managed to express the self-consciousness of his people and its history in the work as equally and deeply. The unique beauty of the native land, its heroic history in the paintings of I.S. Glazunov is a source of spiritual strength for new and new generations of Russian citizens.
