Picturesque Metaphors by Valery Kapterev to be Displayed in Moscow

The Tretyakov Gallery in Krymsky Val Street opens an exhibition of the painter and graphic artist Valery Vsevolodovich Kapterev (1900–1981).

      While studying in the VKHUTEMAS (Higher Art and Technical Studios) the artist made his first trip to Central Asia, which became for him a source of inspiration for many years. In 1949 Valery Kapterev was excluded from Moscow Regional Union of Artists for “formalism”, and in the late 1950s he was rehabilitated, though the ban on his participation in exhibitions remained till the end of his life. The artist continued to work actively in the 1960-1970s. Visionary images, paradoxical features of the ordinary in Valery Kapterev’s works, and his appeal to antique, old testament and evangelical motives allow art critics to characterize the artist’s creativity as “magic symbolism”.

      Almost all pre-war paintings by Valery Kapterev were lost. The rare remaining works Night Still-life (1931) and Old City (1932), both from the Tretyakov Gallery collection, will be presented at the exhibition. The exposition will also include canvases and cardboard paintings of the 1940s-1970s from private collections and the artist’s family fund.

      The exhibition will take place in the Tretyakov Gallery Museum in Krymsky Val from March 20 to May 19.
