Exhibition of Oleg Krotkov Opened in the Russian Museum

A personal exhibition of Oleg Krotkov has been opened in the Stroganov Palace.

      The exposition is a memory tribute to the recently passed away artist and for the first time it represents the master’s creativity so fully.

      The visitors will see about 70 paintings by Oleg Krotkov – these are key works by artist from the 1950s to quite recent time.

      The 1950s are presented at the exhibition with Krotkov's industrial works, which were his attempts to fit into the range of artists who were engaged in subject matters of socialist realism. 

      In the 1970s – 1980s Oleg Krotkov resorted to monumental painting and works of that period narrate about the achievement of the artist’s own inner tasks.

      In the 1990s Oleg Krotkov together with his wife Ella Binshtok moved to Israel, and then the time of opening new vistas for the artist started. In the period of his life in Israel the master, besides painting still lifes and landscapes, plunged deep into the realm of evangelical and biblical scenes and reflected on universal subjects even more. 

      The exhibition displaying the evolution of Oleg Krotkov’s creativity will run in the Stroganov Palace till January 13.
