​Vasily Vereshchagin

Mar 7 - Jul 15 2018       Krymsky Val 10
Vasily Vasilyevich Vereshchagin was Russian painter noted for his war scenes. Vereshchagin’s paintings of scenes during the invasion of Russia by Napoleon in 1812 enjoyed extraordinary popularity; innumerable reproductions of them were made. The pacifist and humanitarian movement of the time made use of his painting of a pyramid of skulls (“Apotheosis of War,” 1871). The aim of this exhibition is to show the viewer the artist’s unique personality – he was both a warrior and a pacifist, an eager explorer of new lands and people, a painter who radically changed the genre of battle painting.
