Exhibition "Types and Scenes of Petrograd in 1917-1920" in Moscow
26.06.2017 11:50

The exhibition presents paintings by Alexander Vakhrameyev, depicting the life of Petersburg at the turn of epochs.

      Alexander Vakhrameyev (1874-1926) studied under Ilya Repin at the Art School of Princess Maria Tenisheva, and then under Pavel Kovalevsky at the Higher Art School in the Academy of Arts. He developed the traditions of realism, focusing on the psychological portrayal of the characters. He found plots and scenes on the city streets.

      Alexander Vakhrameyev was one of the first artists who tackled upon the theme of the October Revolution. His painting series "Types and Scenes of Petrograd in 1917-1920" is of both artistic and historical value. Many episodes are depicted with a trace of irony. The series was first shown in 1927 at the posthumous exhibition of the artist.

      The exhibition is running at the History Museum in the Red Square from April 1 to July 31.
