Alexander Tikhomirov Not condemning to oblivion

Exhibition “Alexander Tikhomirov “Not condemning to oblivion…” ("Holocaust”, "Auschwitz ", "Babi Yar” graphic series) opened on October 17, 2013 at Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center.

      The name of Alexander Dmitrievich Tikhomirov (1916–1995), painter and graphic artist, became widely known comparatively recently, after his large personal exhibitions which took place in the State Central Museum of Contemporary History of Russia (Moscow, 2010), the State Russian Museum (Saint-Petersburg, 2011) and the State Museum of Oriental Art (Moscow, 2012).

      It will be for the first time when A. D. Tikhomirov’s graphic works, previously unknown, but presenting very essential stratum of master’s creative period are to be displayed at an exhibition in the Jewish Museum & Tolerance Center. These are tragic, poignant graphic sheets of 1950-1980-ies referring to the Holocaust.

      They were found by heirs less than a year ago – when sorting out the archive of Tikhomirov's daughter Anna, who was an artist too. Among her sketches and graphics there was a folder with "Holocaust" sign, written by Tikhomirov’s hand. This accidental discovery gave an impetus for organization of the exhibition "Not condemning to oblivion…" As Heritage Foundation of Artist A. D. Tikhomirov reports the exhibition is open for visitors from October 17 to November 17, 2013.
