Personal exhibition of Boris Grigoriev — one of the best representatives of the “first wave” of Russian emigration - has opened in the Engineering Building of the Tretyakov Gallery.
The 125th anniversary of the artist has been marked with an extensive display of his cultural legacy – altogether 150 works.
A century ago Boris Grigoriev (1886 – 1939) was the most expensive portraitist in the world; however, he was not favored with any personal exhibitions in his home city of Moscow.
His canvasses make top lots of the world auction houses. The artist’s works take the central place in expositions of museums and private collections in different countries, from France to Chili.
The exhibition will run till November, 13th.
