The exposition is composed of 130 paintings of various genres.
Many works were created by artists specifically for the project. Among them are a large-scale painting by Academician Dmitry Shmarin “Ivan the Terrible and his son Ivan in the fall of 1581” and the historical painting by Maxim Fayustov “The Captivity of Prince Igor”. In addition to genre paintings, landscape lyrics are vividly presented at the exhibition. The audience will be able to follow the artists through the streets of ancient Russian cities.
The best forces of the Union, the artists who stood at the origins of its revival — Nikolai Zaitsev, Dmitry Shmarin, Maxim Fayustov, Andrei Drozdov, Viktor Orlov, Andrei Alekhin and others, were involved in preparing the exposition.
