Mikhail Nesterov Bashkir State Art Museum will hold Jan Kryzhevsky’s exhibition Ufa — New York — Ufa.
The retrospective will show the artist’s creative path throughout more than 40 years.
It is a reminder that at the end of 2014 Jan Kryzhevsky returned to Ufa from the USA, where he had migrated to in the 1990s. For a few last years of his immigration the artist experienced distress, but with the assistance of the head of Bashkir Republic Rustem Khamitov he managed to come back to Russia.
The exposition consists of about 50 paintings. These are works from collections of M. V. Nesterov Museum and the Vologda Art Museum, as well as works of the recent years. The painter managed to paint a few canvasses upon his return home.
The exhibition will be opened from January 29.
