Alexander Tyshler. Theatre in easel paintings

Nov 28 - Feb 24 2020       Nevsky pr. 17
The exhibition, held In the year of theater in Russia, is devoted to the amazing, mysterious and strange world of images of Alexander Grigoryevich Tyshler (1898-1980). The exhibition includes works from the collection of the Russian Museum, which has an extensive collection of paintings and graphic works Tyshler, received in the Museum from the master and his wife art historian F. Y. Syrkina.
Tyshler gained fame and recognition while participating in the Association of Moscow artists OST ("society of easel") in the second half of the 1920s-early 1930s. The innovation of the productions, in the design of which the master participated, consisted in addressing the folk forms of the theater, in preserving the national color and in a deeply social interpretation of the drama. At the same time, Tyshler began to work actively as a theater artist.  In the works presented at the exhibition, the romantic theatrical vision of the master is always felt, which allows us to speak about the special Tyshler artistry, about the peculiar refraction of the mythologism of the revolution. It is fully revealed in the cycles associated with the understanding of the events and images of the Civil war, in which the artist was directly involved.
