On April 28, in one of the halls of the main exposition of the museum, the exhibition “New acquisitions in the collection of VOKhM named after I.N. Kramskoy “. The exhibition presents the graphics of one of the brightest representatives of the domestic underground of the late 1960s – early 1990s, Vladimir Viktorovich Loboda. Visitors will see 12 linoleum engravings made by the artist for the work of N.V. Gogol “Sorochinskaya Fair”.
For Vladimir Loboda, art is a process, a search for the movements and experiences of the human soul. The artist is worried about a wide range of human feelings: from high to earthly and even completely down to earth. The nature of the author’s philosophical outlook manifests itself in the fact that in completely mundane scenes he can see both high impulses and ups of the human soul, and notes of falsehood, farce and booth. The interweaving of high and low motivations creates a unique spirit of Human dramas and Human comedies of heroes in the plots on the master’s canvases.
The exhibition will run until May 23.
On April 30, the museum opened the exhibition “To end the war and admire the world.”
The exhibition will feature more than 20 graphic works from the museum collection, created by the artist Nikolai Borisovich Vasilenko, and a documentary fund from the personal archive of the artist’s family.
Monographic exhibition of works by N.B. Vasilenko shows the beauty and subtlety of graphic art. The main tool of the master was the pen, and he created his masterpieces using ordinary ink. Nikolai Vasilenko chose these materials during his school years and remained faithful to them until the end of his life.
The most beautiful places of the Voronezh region are reflected in the works of the master. These are the city streets of Voronezh, and the images of the Don River, and the countryside of the Don region. The artist knew his native land and loved it dearly.
The exhibition will run until June 06.
