Reading Fairy Tales by Alexander Pushkin at the Pushkin Museum

The Pushkin State Museum in Moscow presents an exhibition dedicated to the fascinating realm of Pushkin's fairy tales.

The fairy tales written by Alexander Pushkin have long gone beyond Russian literature and found reflection in numerous paintings and drawings. The first drawing illustrations to the poet’s works appeared during his lifetime. Later on, famous Russian book illustrators and artists, such as Ivan Bilibin, Konstantin Korovin, Vassily Polenov, and many others resorted to Pushkin’s writings.

The exhibition “Reading Fairy Tales by Alexander Pushkin” includes a collection of the so-called “pictorial Pushkiniana” of the XIX-XX centuries from the funds of the Pushkin State Museum, which introduces the audience to the whole variety of illustrations by different artists. Among the exhibits, there are book illustrations, sketches, theatrical scenery drawings, etc.

Where: the Pushkin State Museum at the address 12/2, Prechistenka Street, next to metro stations Kropotkinskaya and Park Kultury, Moscow.

When: from October 1, 2018, to April 30, 2019

Open hours: from 10 am to 6 pm on Wed, Tue, Fri through Sun; from 12 am to 9 pm on Thu; Monday is a day off.
