January 24, 2017 in the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts. Pushkin will open the exhibition "Caprichos", dedicated to the eponymous graphic cycles of prominent Spanish artists of different eras - Francisco Goya and Salvador Dali. An important part of Goya’s legacy is graphic works in which the artist has shown himself to be an outstanding master of etching. By 1799, Goya created a series of engravings "Caprichos", comprising 80 sheets. These are the author's prints, supplied with comments devoted to the denunciation of human vices, religious prejudices and public errors.

... and overheard on the web

Exhibition of works by Gustav Klimt in the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts. They are waiting for Pushkin since 2014 - well, we are also waiting for details. While encouraging the phrase from the announcement of upcoming exhibitions on the museum's social network page - a publication made on December 21, 2016, says: "... within the year, the museum will host exhibitions of Titian, Schillet and Klimt, Danish design, Soutine and much more." Recall that the future exhibition was first announced by the director of the Vienna Albertina Museum, Klaus Albrecht Schröder, speaking three years ago in Moscow at the opening of the exhibition of French drawing. “The interaction between Albertina and the Pushkin Museum is especially important, art is one of the best ways to communicate. We will show here the exhibition of Gustav Klimt in 2017, and in Albertina we will organize a project related to the impressionists from the collection of the Pushkin Museum. ”Allegory of the sculpture IIGustav Klimt1896, 41.8 × 31.3 cm

True, Mr. Schroeder did not specify then whether it would be just graphic works, or whether they would complement the famous Klimt paintings from the Vienna museum collections. Whether the graphics of Egon Schillet from the Albertina collection will be exhibited at the same time, or whether the exposition will be separate is also unknown. The intrigue remains! Recall that in the Albertina Museum itself is a collection of nearly 170 drawings of Klimt, relating to all periods of his work. Also there is stored his archive - letters, posters, photographs. We follow the announcements and immediately inform the readers about new details about the upcoming exhibition.

We remind you that until March 12, 2017, the Pushkin Museum shows the Georgian avant-garde of the first third of the twentieth century - vivid works of artists, many of whom studied and exhibited in Paris. Visitors discover the works of Niko Pirosmanashvili (Pirosmani), Vladimir (Lado) Gudiashvili, David Kakabadze, Kirill Zdanevich, Elena Akhvlediani, Zigi (Sigismund) Valishevsky ... In one of his autumn interviews, the director of the State Museum of Fine Arts named after him. Pushkina Marina Marina - this is a view of the landscape, which depicts the sea.
