Illustrations to War and Peace Exhibited in Lipetsk

The exhibition of illustrations to the famous novel “War and Peace” by the great Russian author Leo Tolstoy takes place at the Regional Art Gallery in Lipetsk. It is devoted to the 200th anniversary of the victory in the Patriotic War of 1812.

      The exposition includes portraits of the author and heroes of war and about 70 graphics illustrations to the novel. Among them are illustrations of Michael Bashilov, who was one of the most famous masters of book illustrations of that time.

      In his paintings the artist focuses on the gesture of the hero, on his silhouette and pose. The illustrations have a lot of humor, and sometimes express satirical features. The most valuable in this series is that Bashilov accurately recreates the atmosphere, in which the action of the novel takes place.

      In addition, the exhibition presents drawings made by Nadia Rusheva (1952-1969). The artist generally painted her favorite character - Natasha Rostova. All works were created without sketches. The artist always drew a fair copy, and did not use an eraser.

      The exhibition will last until March 29.
