Icelandic Autumn in the Pushkin Fine Arts Museum

The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow presents Days of Icelandic Culture.


      In November the museum holds lectures and seminars, an evening of the Icelandic literature, a concert and a special program for children.


      One of the central events is the exhibition Icelandic Autumn. It presents works by three leading artists of Iceland of the late 19th - early 20th centuries. The favourite genre of the Icelandic painters is landscape. Johannes Sveinsson Kjarval was the most outstanding of the three artists exhibited at the Icelandic Autumn in the Pushkin Museum. The highlight of the exposition is his famous painting Lava.


      "He had a very interesting path of development in his creativity. The artists started with realism, and then shifted to modernism, and this painting was one of his latest and best works; it is very expressive way and sophisticated in terms of colour", - the exhibition curator Anna Poznanskaya emphasizes.
