The exhibition "Henry Semiradsky. Following the example of the Gods" in the State Tretyakov Gallery

At the exhibition "Henry Semiradsky. Following the example of the gods" there are only about 100 exhibits, among them 50 works by Heinrich Semiradsky, as well as a number of works by masters of his circle from Russian and foreign collections.

Henrikh Ippolitovich Semiradsky (1843-1902) is the greatest master of European academism, a figure of international scale.

The corpus of works by contemporary artists included in the exhibition — the creator of the "New Academy" Timur Novikov, Oleg Maslov and Viktor Kuznetsov, Olga Tobreluts, Timofey Parshchikov, Valery Koshlyakov, Aristarkh Chernyshev — makes it possible to actualize the theme of beauty in art and look at the traditions of academism in a new perspective.
