Titled Vasari. Gothic. The Age through the Eyes of Medieval and Modern Artists

The A.S. Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in the halls of its Volgo-Vyatsky branch presents an exhibition "Titled Vasari. Gothic. The Age through the Eyes of Medieval and Modern Artists".

The exhibition brings together artifacts from the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts collection and works by contemporary artists and focuses on the Gothic period and its interpretations by artists in the early 21st century.

The exhibition project is named after the famous Italian painter, architect and art historian Giorgio Vasari (1511-1574). His book Biographies of the Most Famous Painters, Sculptors and Architects (1550) became a point of reference for the entire modern science of art. Vasari was the first to propose a division of art history into three major periods, which are devoted to the three parts of the project, "Gothic," "Renaissance" and "Mannerism.

Prepared according to materials from the websites of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts and the SCCI Arsenal.
