The exhibition includes more than 60 impressionistic works of Russian avant-garde artists from 14 state museums and 17 private collections. Among the authors are such famous names as Mikhail Larionov, Robert Falk, Kazimir Malevich, Alexey Yavlensky, Natalya Goncharova, Pyotr Konchalovsky, Aristarkh Lentulov, Alexandra Exter, Nadezhda Udaltsova, Antonina Sofronova, Olga Rozanova and many others.
The exhibition is designed to show the connection between impressionism and the Russian avant-garde of the beginning of the 20th century, as well as to reveal the little-known aspects of the work of the masters of this movement, who glorified Russian art to the whole world. Visitors, with the help of the provided works, will be able to trace the influence of painting by French impressionists and post-impressionists on the bright revolutionary discoveries of Mikhail Larionov, Natalia Goncharova, Kazimir Malevich, Peter Konchalovsky, Robert Falk and other famous artists.
The exposition occupies two whole floors of the museum. The black and white design and the interesting shape of the walls and partitions refer the viewer to the ideas of the avant-garde artist El Lissitzky, and only emphasizes the brightness and ambiguity of the exhibits.
