Jubilee Exhibition of Borovikovsky Opens in Tretyakov Gallery

Today the Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, has opened an exhibition celebrating the 250th anniversary since birthday of the illustrious artist Vladimir Borovikovsky.
      Unlike the majority of classical artists Vladimir Borovikovsky had no academic education. His first and foremost teacher was his father. Empress Catherine the Great herself admired his art.
      It was in Borovikovskys creations that painting sentimentalism reached its paramount implementation, excelling western analogs. The artist became a genuine creator of the portrait canons of sentimentalism.
      The exposition that has gathered together about 200 Borovikovskys works from various museums shows the painters legacy to the full.
      Besides well-known portraits the visitors will see less known portraits of religious figures and church painting: the iconostasis of the Kazan Cathedral in St. Petersburg and of the Trinity Church at Smolensk Cemetery.
      The exhibition runs till 18 January.
