The exposition “My Pushkin. To the 220th Anniversary since the Poet’s Birth” highlights the personality characteristics of the great Russian poet.
The exhibition tells about the mythologized image of Alexander Pushkin in Russian culture, literature, painting, and folk art. At the same time, it destroys the legends associated with the poet’s life and worldview.
Visitors will get acquainted with the paintings, sculptures, decorative arts, films, and memoirs dedicated to Alexander Pushkin. As a result, the poet’s personality will be displayed from different angles, and his multifaceted image will make a single picture of that mosaic.
The poet and his characters come to life in ceramics and metal, in glass and plaster, in gouaches and watercolors. Special attention is given to a unique product - the Turkmen carpet, which has a replica of the Pushkin portrait painted by outstanding Russian artist Orest Kiprensky.
