"HENRYK SIEMIRADZKI AND RUSSIAN ARTISTS’ COLONY IN ROME"

October 2018 will mark the 175th anniversary of Henryk Siemiradzki (1843–1902), graduate of the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts and one of the most prominent masters of the late 19th century European academic painting. The exhibition will unite, for the first time, 125 artworks by Siemiradzki and his contemporaries, Russian academic painters and sculptors, who worked in the Eternal City in the second half of the 19th century and the early 20th century. Among them are Mark Antokolsky, Stepan Bakalovich, Vladimir Beklemishev, Mikhail Botkin, Fyodor Bronnikov, Nikolai Laveretsky, Alexander Rizzoni, Alexander and Pavel Svedomsky, Vassily Smirnov, and Pavel Chistyakov. The core of the exhibition will include not only artist’s famous canvases from the collections of the Russian Museum and the Tretyakov Gallery but also less widely known works from regional and private collections.
