Country men and country women

Mar 1 - Sep 10 2017       Krymsky Val 10
A new exhibition at the State Tretyakov Gallery titled “Country men and country women” gives visitors a glimpse into the lives of country folk during the Soviet times. It features images of peasants in the sculpture of the 1920s to the 1950s and presents works of the best masters who were working in plastic arts in the first half of the 20th century: Vera Mukhina, Ivan Shadr, Boris Korolyov, Vladimir Domogatsky, Beatrice Sandomirskaya, Ilya Slonim, Ekaterina Belashova, Sergei Churakov. Many of the works on display were in their time prominent exhibition phenomena and were enthusiastically discussed by critics. For instance, Vera Mukhina’s “A Peasant Woman”, a sculpture created for an exhibit dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the 1917 October Revolution, was sent to the 1928 Venetian Biennale and was a great hit there.
