The Moscow Museum of Modern Art will host an exhibition from November 15 to March 31 “Impossibleimpossible”. It is dedicated to the People’s Artist of the USSR Dmitry Nalbandyan and the 30th anniversary of his museum-workshop. You can visit the exhibition at the address: Petrovka Street, building 25.
The beginning of Dmitry Nalbandyan’s creative career occurred in the first half of the 1930s. Then he quickly became famous as a master of Soviet ceremonial portraits. The artist created images of the leaders of the Soviet state, rulers of different countries of the world, politicians, military leaders, scientists and astronauts.
The main theme of the artist’s creative heritage was Leniniana – an extensive series of works dedicated to the personality of Vladimir Lenin. It contains hundreds of paintings in different types and genres: ceremonial portraits and portrait sketches, as well as multi-figure compositions describing key episodes of the revolutionary events of the early 20th century.
Dmitry Nalbandyan is known not only as the author of historical paintings, but also as the creator of landscape painting and numerous still lifes.
Purpose of the exhibition “Impossibleimpossible”— a rethinking of the artist’s significance in the history of Russian art, which is based on the principle of revising his key works from the 1930s to 1993. This will make it possible to get acquainted with the dynamics of the development of his work and to consider the phenomena of Soviet official art that took place in parallel with it. Guests will be presented with a large amount of documentary evidence of the past: sketches, drawings and paintings by the author.
The exhibition is based on works from the collection of the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the Manege Central Exhibition Hall, the State Tretyakov Gallery, the State Historical Museum, the State Museum of the History of Russian Literature named after V.I. Dahl, collections of Vladimir Nekrasov and Irina Kondratova, as well as from other regional archives, public and private collections.
