The Museum of Russian Impressionism and the Tretyakov Gallery present an exhibition of paintings by Nikolai Mescherin.
Nikolai Meshcherin was an outstanding Russian impressionist and one of the first downshifters in this country: he quit a successful business in Moscow for a quiet life in a secluded country estate.
The exhibition includes more than 100 paintings by Nikolai Mescherin as well as his famous guests, namely Igor Grabar, Isaac Levitan, and Apollinary Vasnetsov.
