Exhibition Dedicated to Russian Artist Nikolai Ilyin Opens in Madrid - 2 April, 2003 - News

The exhibition "Nikolai Ilyin and Graphic Design" opened in the Queen Sofia National Art Museum in Madrid.

The museum ranks second after the famous Prado in Spain. The exposition features 88 books and magazines designed by this innovative artist.

In the 1920s-1930s, he made a great contribution to the development of world graphics. Nikolai Ilyin, who worked for Moscow publishing houses and designed more than a thousand books, introduced new principles of graphic design and invented a new technique, which involved the use of metals.

The Russian graphic art of that epoch, as well as placard art and works by avant-garde painters, had a great influence on the development of fine arts all over the world.

Spain, the motherland of great painters, has been recently showing great interest in Russian fine art, not only in popular avant-garde, but also in classics.
