Tretyakov Gallery Displays Art by Pyotr Kotov

The Tretyakov Gallery opens the exhibition Pyotr Kotov. Realism as Personal Choice.

      The exhibition to be held from May 21 is timed to the 125th anniversary since the artist’s birth. The renowned portraitist of the socialist realism era is presented in this project first of all as a painter, with his wide range of stylistic opportunities, subtle feeling for colours and sincere attention to the contemporary.

      Having consciously chosen realistic manner of painting, Pyotr Kotov carried on and developed traditions of the Russian painting school of the second half of the 19th century.

      He can be reckoned among the followers of Russian impressionism, such as I.E. Grabar, S.V. Gerasimov, A.M. Gerasimov and V.G. Tsyplakov.

      Pyotr Kotov came down the history of fine arts as the author of industrial landscapes and the portrait master.

      The exhibition bringing together 105 works of art will run till July 27.
