Mitki Arrange Performance with Ivan the Terrible
A.Medved (RIA Novosti)

A performance presentation of the exhibition of one painting New Son of Ivan the Terrible has been held in the Central House of Artist in Moscow.

      The idea of the performance came after orthodox activists demanded Ilya Repin’s painting Ivan the Terrible and his Son Ivan on November 16, 1581 to be removed from the Tretyakov Gallery. They stated that the well-known painting offends patriotic feelings of Russians.

      The presentation started to be prepared for a few days prior to it. A carpet and the painting were brought to the gallery. The 2-meter large canvass depicts Ivan the Terrible on his knees. He meets a delegation of the Mitki carrying a baby, documents and gifts.

      The scene of the painting was performed in modern reality. The artist Herman Vinogradov impersonated the tsar, whereas other members of the art group with a baby and the things required for him stood in line in front of him. Besides, the new son of Ivan the Terrible was given a name.
