The environs of Moscow ”(1866) and“ Rain in the Oak Forest ”(1891) by Ivan Shishkin. The canvases are selected to reflect the deep and complex ideas of the world and nature inherent in Russian people, as well as deep lyrical feelings and ideas that permeate Russian art.
“We all know that Russian music and literature are popular in Japan. However, Russian paintings are not so famous. This exhibition is intended to complete the image of Russia created by Russian composers and Russian writers, ”said Zelfira Tregubova, director of the Tretyakov Gallery.
