Online exhibition dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory
To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory, museum Collection opens the exhibition of sculptural works of the second half of the 1940s-1960s, dedicated to the Great Patriotic War.
The exhibition features the works of the leading sculptors, representatives of the monumental art of the Soviet period that were parched by the war and inspired by the exploits of the victorious people, such as Evgeny Vuchetich, Alexander Grube, Semyon Andreychenko, Vasily Agibalov and Viktor Mukhin.
The names of those artists today are hardly ever mentioned in the art agenda of cultural events. Like many other evidences of the Soviet era monumental style - works of art, sculptural compositions, monuments and memorials - they are undeservedly forgotten and buried in oblivion in the time of fleeting visual flow and Instagram creative.
Today, we want to recall the names of these sculptors and remind the stories behind the monuments and memorials that has become iconic for our country.
Almost all masters whose works are presented at the exhibition were the front-line soldiers, fearless chroniclers of the war.
The items that we see today captured in bronze is a peculiar visible history of the Great Patriotic War, narration about its main military battles, the impressions, emotions and memory ...
Details and interesting facts from the sculptors’ biographies, the stories of the monuments’ creation, and audio selection of the war period songs are on the museum Collection website.
