The Voronezh Regional Art Museum named after I.N. Kramsky presents a virtual exhibition «The Art of the Renaissance in the works of Vohm named after I.N. Kramsky».
The art of the Renaissance epoch is one of the brightest pages of world art – a period of great changes and achievements. Italian humanists were among the first to understand the intrinsic value of the ancient heritage, and Italian artists, architects and sculptors managed to create the greatest masterpieces.
The common aspirations of the masters of the Renaissance were characterized by the creation of a sublime, spiritualized image of a beautiful person, harmony and balance in composition.
The collection of Western European painting from the collection of the Voronezh Regional Art Museum named after I.N. Kramskoy possesses a number of first-class works of artists of various art schools. Among them are the works of the great masters’ students – Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio, Michelangelo and others, who found strong points in the ancient heritage for the development of the secular Renaissance culture.
The exhibition includes works presented in the main exhibition of the museum.

Lecture: “Eternally living past. Design as an evolution of the idea”
Beginning at 18.00 hours.
Pavel Ulyanov, design historian, specialist in the history of the design of the living environment; collector; gallery owner
The topic of evolutionary design, that is, the consistent improvement of one basic idea, is the subject of study of one of the leading design historians Pavel Ulyanov. Pavel founded the Chairmuseum project – a collection of chairs and armchairs of industrial design of the twentieth century. It is by the example of these pieces of furniture that the basic ideas that underlay the masterpieces of furniture design and the transformation of these ideas over many hundreds of years can be most clearly shown. This topic is extremely relevant for Russian design: over the course of the twentieth century, serious changes repeatedly occurred in the socio-economic development of the country, and each time the “material world” of the previous period changed to suit the new “course”. Not to “reinvent the wheel every time”, but to study the existing experience and build on the traditions, use the existing experience, adapting it to modern requirements and conditions is the basis of the “right”, “reasonable” design.
Lecture: “Architecture and design of the XX century”
Beginning at 18.00 hours.
Nikolay Vasilyev, historian of architecture, design and urban planning, Ph.D., photographer.
The lecture will focus on the relationship between the design arts and the role of architects in the development of design as a separate discipline, mainly on the example of Soviet architecture and design. Design is the youngest of the design arts, it is thousands of years younger than architecture and urban planning, but at the same time much more dynamic. Having appeared together with the mass industry, design has largely overtaken architecture, which can be clearly seen in Western examples, but is almost negligible in the domestic practice of the 20th century. At the same time there was no separate design education, and the profession itself, in official registries for a long time. What was it that pushed the professionals in the related fields into design in the 1920s, 1950s, or 1970s?
Film screening “DESIGN IN THE USSR” (1979) and the discussion after the film with Alexandra Sankova, curator of the exhibition.
Beginning at 18.00 hours.
Alexandra Sankova, founder and director of the Moscow Museum of Design; designer, historian of design; the author of the collection of interviews with Russian designers; The author of articles on Soviet design.
Entrance to the lectures is free by prior registration at the link.
