Exhibition "Gogol in Moscow"

It was in Moscow, where Nikolai Gogol wrote the first volume of "Dead Souls" and communicated with Alexander Pushkin, Mikhail Lermontov and Ivan Turgenev. The exhibition tells about the Moscow period in the life and creativity of the great Russian writer.

      “After Rome, only Moscow can be liked,” - Nikolai Gogol said. He often visited this city, where he would meet his friends, study the patriarchal living of local families and work, of course.

      It was here that the first volume of “Dead Souls” and the story “Taras Bulba” were created, and materials for the “Old World Landowners” were compiled.

      At the exhibition in the Museum of Moscow, you can see the timeline, which marks important dates in the writer's life, as well as the first edition of "Dead Souls", documents, the city views of the 1830s -1850s, and modern portraits of Gogol.

      A multimedia installation tells about the writer’s communication with Mikhail Shchepkin, Sergey Aksakov and Mikhail Pogodin.
