Personal exhibition of Petr Ossovsky
An exhibition of works by Petr Ossovsky entitled “Four visits to Italy” will open at the gallery on November 21, 2012 and run until December 29. Petr Ossovsky (born in 1925) is one of the leaders of the Severe Style movement which emerged in Soviet Russia in the 1960s. In the relative freedom of the Khrushchev era this particular style in the arts was a striking departure from the norms of Socialist Realism which ruled since the 1930s. It replaced the pomp, ceremoniousness, prettiness, and utopian optimism of Socialist Realism with work that presented a more truthful look at reality. Main proponents of the Sever Style were Petr Ossovsky, Gely Korzhev (1925-2012), whose personal exhibition took place at the gallery in the spring this year and Viktor Ivanov (born in 1924).
The exhibition will focus on a group of works which were created following four visits to Italy in 1956, 1965, 1972 and 1990. These have left a deep impression on the artist who wrote: “Italy is a country close to God! You stand in owe of its beauty…”. Looking at the Italian series of Ossovsky you can join in his admiration of its bright and bold landscapes and timeless beauty of its cities. Many of the paintings will be exhibited in public for the first time.
We invite you to visit the gallery from Tuesday to Saturday 12-19h. Entrance is free. For additional information please contact us on the general numbers above. We look forward to seeing you.
