The exhibition will include works from different years, created by artists during their creative life. Within the framework of the exhibition opening, the presentation of the book by K.E. Putintseva "Word in watercolor colors."
Eduard Petrovich Putintsev was born in 1930 in Moscow. In 1955 he graduated from the Moscow Architectural Institute, worked in Yakutia, where he was engaged in the design and construction of residential and public buildings. In 1960-1961 he studied at the Royal College of Art in Oslo (Norway). In 1963 he defended his thesis on northern urban planning.
According to the projects of E. Putintsev, over 50 public buildings and structures were built in Moscow, Dnepropetrovsk, Ulyanovsk, Nukus, Novy Urengoy, Stavropol, Bukhara, Mongolia, Ghana and other cities and countries. He is the author of more than 70 scientific papers and books on northern urban planning.
Edward Putintsev travels a lot around Russia and the world, capturing his impressions in fast, sharp and accurate travel sketches. Master of sports in mountaineering, he conquered the mountains of the Caucasus, Yakutia, the Pamirs. More than 50 countries of the world are captured in his paintings and graphic works.
The exhibition includes paintings and watercolors of different years, covering the period from the late 1940s to the present. In works harmonious in color and compositional solution, a special, deeply individual view of the artist at the surrounding world is felt. Next to the chamber lyrical works are presented canvases of epic sound. His colorful “travel notes”, filled with reverence for the greatness and mysterious power of pristine nature, the beauty of the monuments of ancient architecture, brought to Eduard Putintsev wide recognition. Maria Chegodaeva, Doctor of Art, wrote the following about the artist’s work: “Edward Putintsev reveals in her watercolors precisely“ anatomy ”- not the outer“ shell ”of nature, but the construction, the unique internal structure of everything that appears before his eyes, whether it’s a building, a mountain, or a snowy a hillock or a tree against the sky. "
Konstantin E. Putintsev was born in Moscow. He began to draw in early childhood. In 1980 he graduated from the Krasnopresnensk Art School, and in 1987 - with honors from the Moscow Architectural Institute. The graduation project received a gold medal VDNH.
Konstantin Putintsev began to exhibit his work as early as his studies at the institute. The first recognition he received abroad, where his schedule was praised by art historians and the press. In 1989, the work of Konstantin Eduardovich was awarded a special diploma from the World Architecture Biennale in Sofia. Since then, they have been repeatedly demonstrated at Russian and foreign exhibitions. For example, in 2006 and 2007, the works of K. Putintsev represented Russia at the European exhibition “Cultural Heritage” (Paris, France).
Konstantin Putintsev, like his father, is a passionate traveler and spends a lot of time traveling around Russia and the world. He traveled almost all the world from New Zealand to Canada, from China to Scotland, from the most remote corners of Russia to African countries.
A special place in the works of Konstantin Putintsev takes the theme of the Russian North. According to the artist himself, this region is close to him, and he feels it in a special way. The cycle “Volga etudes” is remarkable in that the works included in it are “momentary”, that is, done in just 5-7 minutes. In them, the artist managed to reflect the beauty that opens to his eyes, he captures the moment, conveys the state of nature.
In Putintsev’s landscapes, there is both a mood and a true transfer of the state of the atmosphere and environment, creating a complete sense of co-presence, empathy. In a special lyrical intonation and spirituality, one can trace the continuity of the traditions of the Russian landscape, passing through two centuries from Ilya Ostroukhov to V. N. Rutsay, to Edward Putintsev and his son Konstantin. Another feature of the work of Konstantin Putintsev, diving into poetry and prose that had passed from her father, resulted in the publication of the book Word in Watercolor Tones. Reading the works of Konstantin Putintsev, you just feel like instead of a brush he draws non-material words, unlike pictures, images or landscapes. A selection of stories and poems - as if an exhibition of oral paintings. Traveling through this literary and art gallery is an interesting and exciting business.
Researchers note that the works of Konstantin Putintsev of the 2000s differ from his works of the late 1980s - early 1990s by the appearance of a brighter, more saturated color, temperamental colors, sharp contrasts, and at the same time greater lyricism, romanticism, depth of inner content.
The works of Edward and Konstantin Putintsev are in collections of state museums and numerous private collections in Russia and abroad.
Artists created hundreds of travel sketches in which the authors do not get tired to admire the world, nature, historical and architectural sights. Viewers will be able to see all these works at an exhibition at the Russian Academy of Arts.
