On July 18, 2018, the grand opening of an exhibition of works by the largest Russian artist of the first half of the 19th century, Karl Pavlovich Bryullov (1799-1852), will take place in the Konstantinovsky Palace.
The exhibition will feature eight works of the master:
- seven portraits previously unknown to the public in the private collection of the businessman and philanthropist A. Katkov, a descendant of the famous Briullov family,
- and also the portrait of Aurora Karlovna Demidova - the pearl of the art collection of the Konstantinovsky Palace.
These works are executed by the artist in various periods of his work and demonstrate the typological structure of the portrait image: parade and chamber images, group family portrait, equestrian “portrait-walk”, self-portraits.
The exhibition will be available during a visit to the excursion “Masterpieces of the Konstantinovsky Palace” - will complement the idea of Bryullov’s artistic heritage and allow you to get in touch with the general cultural context of a beautiful era.
The exhibition is open until the end of 2018
