Online Exhibition of the Russian Rooster

Online Exhibition of the Russian Rooster

The image of a rooster in Russian folklore and folk art is one of the most striking and popular. In Russia, the rooster is an unambiguously positive character that brings about light and joy. With its powerful shrill clarion, the rooster drives out evil spirits and helps positive characters. Often in children's fairy tales, it appears as a brave hero, a defender of the weak.

      Since naive art is in many ways connected with folk art,it has adopted the image and the colors of a rooster.

      But naive art is still not the same as folk art, it is original and exists in its own niche. Its creators usually do not have professional education, or they deliberately deviate from its canons, since their personal experience and perception do not fit into them.

      That is why the images of a rooster, presented at the exhibition at the Museum of Russian Lubok and Naive Art, are so different. It is worth taking the time to get to know them. It's amazing how such a depth of image has been achieved with simple Russian Folklore means. The viewer is immersed in what is happening in the picture and understands the artist's message regarding this brave and proud bird of the fairy tale.

      You can visit the exhibition on the museum website.
