The exhibition “Movement towards the light. Soviet Art of the 1920s and 30s"


The exhibition project presented 53 paintings and graphic works from the collections of the Tula Museum of Fine Arts and the Voronezh Regional Art Museum. I.N. Kramskoy.

In the art of the 1920s – 30s, in addition to peppy, optimistic images of construction sites, parades, there is a clear desire for lyric intonation, complex picturesqueness, and richness of the cultural context. The exhibition brought together the works of masters who did not make ideological compromises with the “great style”.

The exposition included the works of 27 authors – as artists whose works have gained worldwide fame – A. Deineka, R. Falk, A. Drevin; and painters who are familiar to narrow circles of connoisseurs of art – N. Torshin, N. Bessarabova, A. Rusakov.

Exhibition “Movement towards the light. Soviet Art of the 1920s and 30s” is an exchange edition. Until August 24 this year, the Tula Museum of Fine Arts hosts an exhibition from the Voronezh collection “Russian Art of the 19th Century”.

The exhibition will run until 21 August.
