Exhibition of Vladimir Yakovlev Opened in Moscow

The Multimedia Art Museum presents an exhibition in memory of Vladimir Yakovlev.

      Vladimir Yakovlev had a hard life: he had fickle health from childhood and was followed up by a psychiatrist from the age of eleven, and had his sight failing from sixteen years of age. He spent most of his life in all sorts of clinics.

      Throughout all this time he painted, though he had no professional art education. While hardly seeing anything, he came close to the canvas, peered into dim spots, and still kept painting.

      Portrait and still life were the favourite genres of Vladimir Yakovlev. The artist gave special preference to the image of flowers.

      Nearly total blindness throughout the artist’s creative career proves that true talent for art is not dependant on eyesight in any way and is rooted much deeper.

      The exhibition will take place in the Multimedia Art Museum till January 18, 2015.
