Russian Art:
"Ideological Realism" Peredvizhniki (Itinerants or Wanderers). Peredvizhniki (Itinerants or Wanderers).
From the mid-eighteenth century, the Russian school of painting and sculpture had been controlled by the Imperial Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg. In the relatively liberal atmosphere of Alexander II's "Great Reforms," there was growing discontent among some artists with the traditionally conservative attitude of the Academy of Arts. In 1863, a group of students at the Academy rebelled at the proposed topic for the annual Gold Medal painting competition: "The Entrance of Odin into Valhalla." They felt that this mythological fantasy was too remote from the real life of Russia that, they believed, demanded their artistic attention. Thirteen painters and one sculptor resigned from the Academy. Soon after they withdrew from the Academy, these "Thirteen Contestants" formed an Artists' Cooperative Society. In 1870, they formed the "Society for Traveling Art Exhibitions," and the painters became known as " Peredvizhniki " (in English, they are known as "Wanderers" or "Travelers" or "Itinerants." The

The answer isn't all that complicated nor simple. The first thing anyone should do when deciding on an investment is a look into the history of Russian Art. Russia has a long and storied history when it comes to art. Their artwork dates back some 860 years. Moscow was not only the capital of Russia, it was also the largest center for Russian art. The Moscow Art School was created there, toward the end of the 15 th and 16 th centuries. Which was called the Golden Age of Russian Art.
Some of the prominent names of Russian art that stemmed from this age are: Theophanes the Greek, Andrei Rublev, Daniil Cherny, and Dionisi. Of these Andrei Rublev is perhaps the most famous. He was called the most outstanding painter of Old Russian Art. It was his icon-painting manner, which was considered to be the best of the 15 th and 16 th centuries.

F rom icons and onion domes to suprematism and the Stalin baroque, Russian art and architecture seems to many visitors to Russia to be a rather baffling array of exotic forms and alien sensibilities. Without any sense of the rich tradition of Russian culture, an appreciation of the country's enormous artistic wealth becomes a game of historical anecdote"the church where so-and-so took refuge from what's-his-name"or a meaningless collection of aesthetic baubles"I like the blue domes the best." In fact, Russian art and architecture are not nearly so difficult to understand as many people think, and knowing even a little bit about why they look the way they do and what they mean brings to life the culture and personality of the entire country. Icons The best collections of icons are to be found in the Tretyakov Gallery and the Russian Museum, though of course many Russian churches have preserved or restored their traditional works. The Great Experiment The rising influence of European culture in Russia during the 17th and 18th centuries brought Russian artwork closer to the familiar traditions of western painting. It wasn't until the end of the 19th century that the next great body of uniquely Russian artistic styles arose, having developed in conjunction with liberal forces of social reform. This modern movement took many different directions almost from its inception, and it would be impossible to describe all of them. However, even a very general acquaintance with their common ideas and interests makes their work much more accessible.

One of the greatest artists of our times, Vasyl Krychevsky (1873-1952) , an outstanding personality and artist of broad inspirations represents a whole epoch of development of the Ukrainian modern art of the first half of our century. Over a period of a full half century, the entire artistic movement in the center of Ukraine was in one way or another connected with the name of this artist. In the field of architecture V. Krychevsky represents the whole artistic trend of the rebirth of Ukrainian style. Basing his works on the historical heritage of Ukrainian architecture, the artist espoused, to a larger degree the utilization of popular (peasant) motives of building. Industriously gathering this rich material, the artist-architect transformed them in a modern spirit, applying architectural forms to contemporary constructional means and material. In spite of the picturesque of his architectural forms, which he created, his buildings were built in conformity with the constructive principle whereby, he used few moderate ornaments and details and tended to apply less and less frequently purely decorative means.

  • Event Calendar Special Deals ... Mstera and Kholui are known to connoisseurs around the world for their inimitable lacquer miniatures. Deeply rooted in history, this art form, along with traditional folk art, icon-painting, and the secular paintings of the mid-18th to late 19th centuries, is among the most splendid and distinctive of Russia’s artistic achievements. The art of Russian lacquer miniatures became famous all over the world owing to the activities of the four old handicraft-centers: Fedoskino , where in the first half of the 19th century the workshops of the Vishnyakov family and Lukutin’s factory expanded large –scale production, exploiting both the Oriental and Western European tradition of lacquer miniatures, and the ancient icon-making centers- Palekh Mstera , and Kholui , where lacquer miniature painting as an art industry came into being, so to say, “through force of circumstances”, for in the 1920’s highly qualified icon-painters were compelled to seek some other field for application of their talents. Nevertheless, those difficulties didn’t prevent the icon-painters from achieving the greatest heights in the creative field that was new to them.
