Zinaida Serebryakova Exhibition at Tretyakov Gallery
Zinaida Serebryakova was a Russian realist painter with a unique touch active in the early 20th century. She is best known for her charming children’s portraits and self-portraits. This retrospective show is the most complete presentation of Serebryakova’s works in over 30 years.
The emphasis in the exhibition is made on the most fruitful period in the artist’s life — her Russian period. A prominent place is given to Serebryakova’s portraiture, her most preferred genre, and also to landscapes. Works of the Paris period have been contributed by French collections, and many of those pieces are being displayed in Russia for the first time. Moreover, also for the first time, Moscow is able to see the decorative panels of the Brouwer Villa, which for a long time were considered to be lost during World War II.
The exhibition includes Serebryakova’s paintings from the following collections: the State Tretyakov Gallery, the State Russian Museum, the Benoit Family Museum in Peterhof, the A.S.Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts (Moscow), the Nizhny Novgorod State Art Museum, the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus (Minsk), Zinaida Serebryakova Foundation (Fondation Serebriakoff) (Paris), and private collections from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Paris and London.
