Tretyakov Gallery Exhibits Unique Graphic Art by Anatoly Kaplan

Anatoly Kaplan's (1902–1980) exhibition in the Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, has been arranged not in a too complicated way. 

There are two halls, where the drawings hang on the walls, while stands in the center of the halls also present graphic art.

It is not the first time Kaplan is displayed in Moscow.  A few years ago his large-scale exhibition took place in Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts.  But now his exhibition on Krymsky Val presents things earlier unseen by Muscovites, for example, the series of illustrations to the fairy tale Nanny-goat (1961). 

Being a student of Vereysky and Rylov, Kaplan was an excellent illustrator.

His works shown at the exhibition are classics of book graphics. Axiomatic are also the images of Jewish places, the Belarusian Rogatchyov, where the artist came from: the city was almost totally destroyed by the nazis, whereas almost all its inhabitants, including the artist’s parents were lost.

 Anatoly Kaplan met the war in Leningrad, from where he was evacuated to Northern Urals. Industrial landscapes of wartime, as well as views of Leningrad recovering after the blockade become not only time documents, but also a reminder of the tradition World of Art. 

Numerous people in the 1940s wanted to forget about it, but art memory is stronger than censorship bans.
