PUSHKIN HOUSE: PAINTING RUSSIA FROM THE TIME OF CATHERINE THE GREAT

May 24 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

| £7/£5

Event Navigation

‘Russian painters underwent a period of intense development in the century following the reign of Catherine the Great. If deferential to foreign artists in the mid eighteenth century, they soon developed into a diverse, critical and ambitious profession whose members ranged from highly trained cosmopolitan celebrities to closely managed serfs. Rosalind Blakesley will track this steep trajectory with particular focus on portrait painters, and consider the ways in which their intriguing dialogue with western art coexisted with the desire to create art which was uniquely their own.’ (PH)
