Romantic Russia Exhibition
A look at Russian art during the turbulent period during and after the Russian revolution, when artists found romance in magnificent scenery and poignant portraits. While people around the world may be familiar with great Russian composers Tchaikovsky and Mussorgsky or writers such as Tolstoy and Dostoevsky, the country’s artistic output is much less widely known. Exhibiting works from the late 19th and early 20th century, on loan from the great collection of The State Tretyakov Gallery, “Romantic Russia” shows the passion, patriotism, beauty and complexity of a nation coming to terms with the collapse of an empire.
