Kustodiyev's Lost Drawing Returns to Kostroma Museum

Ivan Ryazanovsky’s Portrait by the outstanding Russian artist Boris Kustodiyev was lost in the mid 1990s.

      Now it has been returned to the Kostroma Memorial Estate.

      The loss of the portrait created by the artist in 1914 was revealed after verification of funds. Kustodiyev’s work depicting one of the founders of the Kostroma Museum was searched for about ten years; finally it resulted in finding it at one of the Moscow auctions.

      After art examination Kustodiyev’s authorship was confirmed and the drawing was returned to the museum.

Boris Kustodiyev (1878-1927) is known as a portraitist and the author of the works dedicated to life of the Russian province. His most expensive painting is The Carrier sold for 7 million dollars at the Christie’s auction in 2012.
