Face to Face - Exhibition of Italian and Russian Portraitists
March 7, 2017 10:31

The All-Russian Museum of Decorative-Applied and Folk Art, the East Meets West Gallery and the Italian Institute of Culture present the exhibition Face to Face held in Moscow from March 4 to April 10, 2017. The exposition includes works by Criss Guentsati Dubini from Italy and Catherine Rozhkova from Russia.
Portraits by Milanese artist Criss Dubini emphasize the high social status of her models rather than examine their psychological nature and condition.
"Thus, her refined coal portraits, interfaced with antique pieces or parts of the Greek temples, create the Renaissance history memory (Criss and her Goddess)."
As for Moscow artist Catherine Rozhkova, symbolical is not only the name of the her new series, The City of Women, but the very fact of her resorting to the portrait genre. All her heroines - of various age, professions,  and social groups - are bright representative of this epoch living in Russia of the 21st century. They are either her close friends or good companions. They are all united with the respect of their roots, family traditions and the past.
In addition to that, the exhibition will feature a magnificent collection of fabric samples from the All-Russian Museum of Decorative-Applied and Folk Art: two red calico handkerchieves, one of them with the label of Baranov Manufacture of the late 19th - early 20th century, several 19th century female festive headgears from Vologda, Olonets and Tver provinces, and embroidered towels from the northern provinces of Russia (Vologda and Arkhangelsk).
