Russian art of the 20th century cannot be imagined without Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin. He is famous on a par with such great creators as Kazimir Malevich, Vassily Kandinsky and Pavel Filonov.
In 2018, for the 140th anniversary since the birth of Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin, the Russian Museum presented a large-scale exhibition, which included both iconic and little-known works by the artist. In total, visitors saw about 250 paintings, including “Bathing the Red Horse”, “Petrograd Madonna”, “Alarm”, “Death of the Commissar” and others. Many canvases were accompanied with sketches, which gave an idea of the master’s work in progress.
Now the exhibition is available in the online format here
