Russian Art After Perestroika

In connection with the exhibition ”Russian Art After Perestroika” at Sorø Kunstmuseum, a small catalogue has been published.

AF Michelle Korbø

Sorø Kunstmuseum is one of the only museums in Denmark which have a large collection of Russian art from the 19th and 20th centuries.

The museum's permanent Russian art collection, The Hermod Lannung Collection of Russian art, contains some 100 drawings and paintings from the period 1870-1930 by artists such as Petrov-Vodkin, Korovin, Polenov, and Benois.

With the new exhibition "Russian Art After Perestroika", an even wider perspective of the Russian art scene is represented.
The works displayed are a private collection built up by Galina and Igor Osetsimskiy at a time when the former Soviet-Union did not tolerate any form of criticism or opposition.
Art works were often created in dark secret basements to be exhibited in private apartments.

Unknown artists from that time period are now internationally recognized, including artists such as Oleg Kulik, Olga Tobrelutz, Olga Chernyshova, Gor Chagal, Pavel Pepperstein, Igor Makarevich and Francisco Infante.

The exhibition from the Osetsimskiy collection contains 50 art works which can be seen at Sorø Kunstmuseum until January 12th, 2014.
The publication which can be aquired at the museum shows pictures of the 50 art works, pictures of the Osetsimskiy couple, and also includes texts from Mikhail Bode and the exhibition's curator Torsten Bøgh Thomsen.
