Peredvizhniki and Impressionists. On the Way to the 20th Century
The exhibition “Peredvizhniki and Impressionists. On the Way to the 20th Century” was prepared specifically for the 37th International Music and Arts Festival “December Nights of Sviatoslav Richter”. Irina Antonova, the Director of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, has traditionally been the curator of this project. The exhibition continues the museum’s longstanding display strategy based on interplay between Western and Russian art. The unified exhibition space presents outstanding art works by Russian peredvizhniki and European impressionists from the holdings of the largest museums of the Russian Federation, bringing together the two brightest phenomena in 19th century art. The artistic and stylistic approaches of peredvizhniki and impressionists are different in many respects, but unexpected points of convergence and similarities can be found.
