Museum of Russian Impressionist Art was opened in Moscow in May 201601.06.2016
Housed in a historic former chocolate factory, the private museum features a permanent exhibition of some 70 works by Russian artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries including Konstantin Korovin, Valentin Serov and Pyotr Konchalovsky. The Museum of Russian Impressionism, featuring works from the private collection of its founder, Russian businessman Boris Mints, could be a welcome addition to the art scene of a city lacking in private art spaces. »People go to Paris or to London to go to museums, and here they usually come with other interests and visit museums on the sidelines», said Mints. «Our aim is to make people come to Russia to go to museums, look at Russian art, and try to understand it and grasp it.»
«Up until now, only the icons of Andrei Rublev and the works of avant-garde artists (Kazimir) Malevich or (Wassily) Kandinsky were known all over the world,» said museum director Yulia Petrova. »However, between these two periods there is an artistic movement which deserves to be discovered.»
Designed by British architects, the museum — housed in a new circular building boasting ultra-modern lines — has been built on the site of an old sugar silo of a famous Soviet-era confectionery factory, the Bolshevik. The move is hugely ironic: the Bolsheviks, who glorified Soviet realism, shunned impressionist art up until the political thaw of the 1960s. © calvertjournal.com. Pictures source: e-architect.co.uk
