The body in Soviet art

The Museum of Russian Art presents the new exhibition “The Body in Soviet Art”, created from the famous collection of Russian paintings of the 20th century Raymond and Susan Johnson.

«The body in Soviet art»Considers images of the human form in Soviet art, where more than fifty works created in the 1950-1970s are represented. Ideas about the human body have changed over time and in different cultures. Soviet art paid special attention to the working body as part of the Soviet collective.

Drawing and painting of the human form was the benchmark of professional art education in the Soviet era.
