State Russian Museum presents the exhibition "Peter Fomin. Nikita Fomin. On the Pskov land".

Peter Timofeevich Fomin (1919-1996) - Soviet and Russian artist, an outstanding master of Russian realistic landscape of the second half of the twentieth century.

Nikita Petrovich Fomin (b. 1949) - Honored Artist of the Russian Federation, best known as a muralist who participated in the design of many public buildings, churches, memorials in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other Russian cities.

The exhibition presents a hundred paintings of Fominykh, most of which are associated with the Pskov land, the native of which was Peter Timofeevich. Love for the native landscape passed from father to son. Sometimes artists depict the same places. In the solution of similar motives, the continuity of craftsmanship, high pictorial culture, as well as the peculiarities of the manner and intonation of each artist are especially clearly manifested.
