Other Shores. Russian Art in New York

Museum of Russian impressionism presents an exhibition "Other Shores. Russian Art in New York. 1924" about the largest show of Russian painting, sculpture and graphics by a hundred of the best authors in the United States.

After almost a century, visitors will be able to see more than 100 iconic works from museum collections and private collections in Russia and the world, including those from the Albertina Gallery in Vienna. The exhibition includes works by Lev Bakst, Igor Grabar, Boris Grigoriev, Mikhail Larionov, Ilya Mashkov, Pyotr Konchalovsky, Boris Kustodiev and other artists from the collections of the State Tretyakov Gallery, the State Russian Museum, the State Hermitage, the collections of Viktor Shkulev, Anatoly and Maya Bekkerman, Roman Babichev and others.

In 1924, the Exhibition of Russian Art in New York exhibited over 1,000 works. This exhibition is a unique cross-section of Russian art of the first quarter of the 20th century - the exhibition involved the sale of works, so its participants sent their best creations across the ocean. The exhibition of Russian art was held at one of the most prestigious exhibition venues in New York - the Grand Central Palace in downtown Manhattan, after which it visited twenty more cities in the United States and Canada. Many prominent American figures and business representatives assisted in its organization, and publisher William Hearst was a member of the Board of Trustees.

Prepared according to the materials of the website Museum of Russian impressionism.
