Museum of Russian Impressionism in Moscow
May 29, 2016 21:35

It is a unique collection of over seventy canvasses by outstanding Russian artists, such as Konstantin Korovin, Valentin Serov, Igor Grabar, Konstantin Yuon, Pyotr Konchalovsky, Yury Pimenov, and many others. Lots of the masterpieces have been returned to Russia from abroad through efforts of the museum founder and become public domain.

The Russian Impressionism Museum opened on May 26, 2016 is housed in a former confectionery, and nowadays the cultural and business centre Bolshevik in Moscow.

Russian impressionism, which was formerly presented at the state and private museums only as a small part of large-scale art collections has for the first time taken its own independent exhibition venue. The permanent exposition of the Russian Impressionism Museum perfectly illustrates the history of this painting style, as well as traces the origin, development and current state of impressionism in Russia.

More than one thousand square meters of exhibition halls, a movie theater, a modern educational multimedia zone, children's workshops, a cafe, a book&souvenir shop — the new museum as envisioned by its creators is going to become a cultural venue that brings together exhibitions and scientific, publishing and educational activities.

The museum sees its mission in researching the routes of impressionism development in Russia, analyzing works by the artists, who have created its unique national character, promoting impressionism as a significant trend in painting of the 19th and 20th centuries in Russia and abroad, and returning little-known names to the Russian painting anthology.

The permanent exposition of the museum consists of outstanding Russian artists' paintings from the private collection of the museum founder, the patron of arts and art collector Boris Mintz. According to him, impressionism of the Russian school, is very little studied and underestimated. "I want to make a project that would be meaningful to the Russian culture and those people who love art. Our big advantage is that we are creating an absolutely modern museum from the very beginning" — Boris Mintz points out.
