Announcement: exhibition "Valour, Honour and Glory. The image of a warrior in the Russian art of the XIX-XXI centuries"

On May 17, 2022 the exhibition "Valor, Honor and Glory. The image of a warrior in the Russian art of the XIX-XXI centuries" will be held in the Museum of Military Uniform under the Russian Military Historical Society.

The new exhibition, created in collaboration with the museum “Collection” and the Grekov Studio of Military Artists, offers visitors the opportunity to get in touch with art pieces inspired by the soldiers' feat.

Bright images, created by well-known artisans of the 19th and early 20th centuries - Eugene Lanceray, Vasily Demuth-Malinovsky, Paolo Troubetzkoy, Konstantin Isenberg, Alexander Opekushin, Ivan Kovshenkov, demonstrate the enormous potential of the cabinet sculpture genre. These works combine deep emotionality and meticulous reproduction of military uniform and equipment details, militaty attributes and weapons of various combatant branches.

The Soviet masters developed the same genre, but their stylistics differed. The paired bronze statuettes “The Soldier-Winner” by Semyon Andreychenko, a version of the monument on the Mamayev Kurgan in Stalingrad, created by Evgeny Vuchetich is one of these works.

The pictorial art is presented in the exposition by art works of Aleksander Orłowski and The Grekov Studio of Military Artists of the 20th-21st centuries. The exhibition features the works of E.I. Danilevsky, P.V. Ryzhenko, O.A. Avakimyan, N.V. Kolupaev and others.

The exhibition will be opened to the public on May 18 and will run until August 14, 2022
