Exhibition Of Russian Paintings In Genoa

The Doge's Palace in Genoa, Italy, has become the venue of the exhibition of Russian paintings of the late 19th -- early 20th centuries. The exposition features 240 canvases by 30 Russian artists, including such luminaries of the Russian school of painting as Kandinsky and Vrubel. According to the organisers of the exhibition, the major part of the paintings were brought to Genoa from the Tretyakov Gallery of Moscow. However, some canvases were donated by other European museums and private collectors, who had bought paintings from the artists in emigration. The organisers of the exhibition display considerable interest in the Italian period in the life of Russian artists. As is evident from the catalogue available at the exhibition, Kandinski used to visit the settlement of Rapallo near Genoa, Levitan and Aivazovski came to study painting in Italy, other less known Russian artists, whose canvases are also on display at the exhibition, such as Kalmakov, Mashkov, Bogolyubov, used to live for quite some time in the province of Liguria, with the capital in Genoa.
