Михаил Ларионов. 19 сентября — 20 января
Новая Третьяковка. Крымский вал, д. 10, залы 39 — 42
В Третьяковской галерее открылась ретроспективная выставка Михаила Фёдоровича Ларионова (1881–1964), одного из основоположников русского авангарда и его признанного лидера. В его творчестве отразились основные направления начала века: кубизм, примитивизм, футуризм. Ларионов стоял у истоков абстрактного искусства в России. Его «авторский» вариант беспредметной живописи, получивший название лучизм (rayonisme), представляет собой один из путей к абстракции.
До 12 августа в Институте Русского Реалистического Искусства в рамках выставки "Окна в Россию" будут представлены более 60 полотен из собственного собрания и из коллекции Третьяковской галереи. Это произведения Игоря Грабаря, Александра Дейнеки, Александра Лабаса, Юрия Пименова, Георгия Нисского, Сергея Герасимова и других мастеров XX века.
В одном из залов будет транслироваться мультимедийный спектакль «Шедевры без границ» – знаменитые полотна из собрания Третьяковской галереи и Института русского реалистического искусства оживут под аккомпанемент произведений выдающихся русских и советских композиторов.
Главной темой проекта стал мотив окна. Для художников прошлого столетия окно было зеркалом перемен – от революционных потрясений и модернизации городов в первой половине века до переезда в новые кварталы во время оттепели и поисков себя в перестроечные 1980-е.
QUARTA Gallery cordially invites you to the exhibition and art sale "Talks about art", which will work daily from May 26 to June 3 from 12.00 to 20.00 at the Art Studio Gnezdo in Maly Gnezdnikovsky Lane, 12.

Rastorguev, T. Guseva, N. Vorobieva, M. Danzig, T. Konovalova-Kovrigina, N. Konovalova, E. Koba, N. Orlova, L. Nikitina, V. Sizyakova, D. Tegin, L. Usaitis, V. Sokolov, D. Khamin, as well as new acquisitions: sketches for the famous panels of the metro station Kievskaya and other monumental works of Victor Konovalov.

QUARTA Gallery presents the artistic and historical project “The Story of a Family”. For the first time, historic documents, photographs and a series of graphic works by the early departed artist Boris Bespalko will see light of day after being in the family for many years.
Boris Bespalko was born in Warsaw in 1914, where his mother taught at a girl’s high school. After the death of the father and husband the family returned to Ukraine, to the small town of Novgorod Seversky, much famed for its architecture and fascinating landscapes. There they settled in the house of Boris’s uncle Alexander Kononenko. This amazing family became the center of the public and intellectual life in the city thanks to the head of the family appointed the director of the boys’ high school in 1917.
Almost every day people came together at the house of Kononenko. The grand piano in the hall came to life and the samovar inspired profound conversations and poem recitals. Meanwhile, the revolution thundered by and then the civil war broke out along with the typhoid and famine.
Boris was sick with leukemia since childhood. Lying in bed he learnt to play Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” and to paint. At school and later at high school his artistic education was monitored by the teacher called Rolyan, one of Repin’s students. Unmistakable talent and unchildlike mindset characterized Boris Bespalko since early years.
In the mid-20s the family ran from political repressions to Moscow area, where Boris graduated from school and entered artistic courses. It was there in 1930-32 that his brilliant series of graphic artworks was born: the family life chronicle. Accurate hand, bright images and juicy humor are the main features of the young artist’s works, whose life stopped short too early because of the illness not letting his gift flourish.
Despite purely ironic views of young Bespalko his pictures reveal an enormous layer of one of the most dramatic eras in Russia’s history. Arrivals, departures, endless moving and attempts to settle down. The short life of the young gifted artist born to an aristocratic family passed in non-stop movement, in the constant flow of events turning upside down not only each individual life but also the whole world. Having started in the Kingdom of Poland, which formed part of the Russian Empire in those days, and ending in the heart of the newly born state of the USSR, this life of mere 18 years encompassed an unbelievable amount of grand events.
Boris Bespalko’s graphic artworks have been waiting to see the light for many years, much longer than the author himself was granted. This is a life story 18 short instants long. They could have slipped away unnoticed but for the remarkable pictures treasured by the descendants for 85 years.

Still Life: Object Relations
“What a strange thing still life is: it makes you admire a copy of the things which originals you never admire.”
Among the wide range of artworks still life occupies a very special niche: looking at it the viewer attempts to uncover the secret of what the painter wanted to say to him. What idea was he trying to convey? What did the depicted objects mean to him? We still believe that still life is mere decoration and nothing else. And there is a solid historic background to such a belief. When still life was born as a genre it was considered “inferior”, used for decorative purposes only or as a studying means. Nature morte – dead nature…

QUARTA Gallery presents exhibition of artworks from its collection to bring echo of the large-scale culture history exhibition project dedicated to one period of Russian national history which is traditionally labelled by scholars as the “Thaw” which is currently going on in Tretyakov Gallery.
The “Thaw” refers to the period from the early 1950s to the early 1960s when Nikita Khrushev's policies of de-Stalinization and peaceful coexistence with other nations brought many freedoms into all spheres of life: the media, arts, and culture; international festivals; foreign films; uncensored books; and new forms of entertainment on the emerging national TV, ranging from massive parades and celebrations to popular music and variety shows, satire and comedies. Such political and cultural updates all together helped liberate the minds of millions and changed public consciousness of several generations of people in the Soviet Union.
Exhibition project "THAW"/ State Tretyakov Gallery, 10, Krymsky Val, halls 60–61. 16 February — 11 June
Tretyakov gallery presents the largest exhibition project dedicated to the period of national history marked as "the thaw era". It spans the period from 1953, when after Stalin’s death the first amnesties of political prisoners took place, and up to 1968, when the Soviet tanks invaded Czechoslovakia dispelling the illusion of building socialism with "a human face".
Love and art are intertwined so tightly that one could never separate one from the other. Is it not love that inspires the artist to create a sensual image capable of striking a deep chord in the viewer’s heart? From Praxiteles and his divine and at the same time amazingly earthly Aphrodite to ecstatically celestial Botticelli’s Venus and exquisite eroticism of Modigliani, to modern painters who have taken in all the richness of the world’s romantic legacy.
The images of love presented by “Quarta” gallery at “LOVE is…ART” exhibition are diverse but equally touching. They include fine graphic art by Evgeny Rastorguev with his light impressionistic hand, unmistakably giving away the master of the 1960s, as well as his colorful characters from fairy “Gorodets” engaged in vivacious folklore-style flirting.
Fair of Fine Art and exclusive gifts for the New Year.
December 24-25, 2016/ 10 am - 8 pm daily at ARTIME.CLUB (Kuznetsky most str., h.12, 3-d floor, studio 333)
Christmas and New Year are right around the corner. And each city dweller faces the challenge of choosing presents for their nearest and dearest as well as for their colleagues and friends. QUARTA Gallery and ARTIME.CLUB have decided to make a unique offer for those who are looking for a special kind of present capable of carrying your love throughout the years without losing its quality and even acquiring more value with time.
While creating an elaborate piece of art, which in its final form is meant to appear before the viewer, the customer or general public, the artist makes a large number of sketches, variants and drawings. Flicking through a book with illustrations, sympathizing with the cartoon characters, admiring the beauty and comfort of a lovely interior we rarely realize that beyond the book, the frame or the room there are hundreds of fascinating artistic ideas left on paper in pencil, ink or paints. And very often each idea is not just a momentary thought of the artist but a complete piece of art which can be interesting not only for the narrow circle of creators but also for the connoisseurs of graphic arts, collectors and a wide range of viewers.
