The Big Change.
Revolutions in Russian painting 1895 - 1917
12 March - 11 August 2013 @ Bonnefantenmuseum
From 12 March to 11 August, the Bonnefantenmuseum is presenting a unique collection of almost 90 paintings from the two most important museums in Russia (the Tretyakov Museum in Moscow and the Russian State Museum in St Petersburg) and from a number of smaller collections. The exhibition illustrates the birth of modern art in Russia, from 1895 to 1917; an exceptional period of continuous innovation and creativity that had a decisive influence on the global development of visual art. The exhibition presents world-famous artists such as Kazimir Malevich and Wassily Kandinsky alongside new discoveries like Ilya Mashkov, Aristarkh Lentulov, Pavel Filonov and Petr Konchalovsky. Most of the paintings have never been seen in the Netherlands before, and some of the works have never even been exhibited outside Russia. LINK bonnefanten
