The new joint exhibition of the State Museum of Fine Arts of the Republic of Tatarstan and the Galeev Gallery (Moscow) represents the work of one of the most outstanding masters of the Kazan fine arts of the 1910s-1920s, Vera Vilkiviska, from the collections of the State Museum of Fine Arts of the Republic of Tatarstan and private Moscow collections. The exposition opens the project "Moscow Cossacks", which in 2018 will acquaint the Kazan audience with the work of leading artists of the 1920s, whose life and work are equally connected both with Kazan and Moscow.
Vera Wilkowiskaya entered the history of Russian Soviet graphics in the 1920s as a member of the graphic ensemble "The Horseman", who turned Kazan into one of the centers for the development of engraving. V.E. Wilkowiskaya showed herself as an outstanding and original master of woodcuts and linocuts. Its sheets and printed forms are kept in the collections of the largest museums in Russia - the State Russian Museum, the State Museum of Fine Arts named after AS Pushkin. Pushkin, etc. The exposition allows you to see already well-known works of V.E. Wilkowiskaya from the collections of the Pushkin Museum of the Republic of Tatarstan and the Galeyev Gallery, as well as unique impressions preserved in the archives of the artist’s family.
Ironically, the painting, which V.E. Wilkowiskaya always considered her main vocation, for many years she remained outside art history studies, museum and private gathering, remaining a white spot in her work. The exhibition for the first time acquaints the modern spectator with its picturesque canvases and drawings executed mainly in the genre of the portrait, reflecting the family and friendly environment of the author. They reveal a bright talent and passionate artistic temperament, determined by the influence of her teacher - Nikolai Feshin. At the same time, the artist enters into a dialogue with the master, working out her own artistic language, which is distinguished by the juiciness of color, brutality and deliberate chaotic swabs. These works, preserved in different branches of the Wilkowyski family, assembled together and restored by the leading specialists of Moscow and St. Petersburg, enter a new interesting page in the history of art of Tatarstan and Russia of the 20th century.
In September-December 2017, the personal exhibition of V.E. Wilkowiskaya successfully passed in Moscow. At the opening of the Kazan exposition, a collective monograph-album dedicated to the artist, released by the Galeev Gallery, known for the high quality of its publications, will be presented. The opening ceremony will be attended by the director of the Moscow gallery, Ildar Galeev, the grand-niece of the artist Natalia Vilkiviskaya, whose efforts have brought together numerous works, restored and now appear to the attention of the public.
The exhibition will last till June 24, 2018.
