"Chef-d'oeuvres de l'École de Paris"


The day before yesterday was surreal, literally. Mainly because I was lucky enough to visit "The Krasnodar Regional Art Museum of Kovalenko" where I saw a wonderful exhibition representing the first time a unique collection of art works by Salvador Dali, Joan Miro, Pablo Picasso, Kansinskiy to name a few. All of them belong to different (art) schools and have a different background but there's something which put their graphics together at one place. This is not only their common madness (just kidding) talent, but the fact that they all belong to one of the most popular art movements of the XX-th century which made French & non-French artists broadly affilliate in a creative way.



What can be more exciting than seeing your favorite artist's work face-to-face?! I spent 2 hours at the museum and made 3 circles around all the "espaces d'art" sticking my eyes to every f*cking picture every 2 minutes in a row. When I saw the works of Henri Matisse I was about to burst out crying cows & dogs. That was a very emotional experience. I don't know why. I cannot call myself an "art junky" at all. Maybe my extreme sensitivity was connected with fever I had that day. 
My friend said that this is really exceptional when they add such big names together. Thanks to 
"PSGallery" (art space based in Saint-Petersburg, Russia) & an art collector Mark Bashmakov for sponsoring & curating the event. I was so excited that I wrote a few complimentary words in their "Visitors' Book". If you would like to have my autograph to further sell it on e-bay, go to 13 Krasnaya St., and steal the damn book. Go, go, go! Lolz. Ha-ha! 
Let me say a few words about the division of the  artworks and their merchandising. There are five main sections:

 - "Russia-France" which embraces as originally Russian artists who used to work in Paris as vice versa - French artists who had illustrated Russian books. (Graphics for Gogol's novels are amazing!).
  - "My Paris" tells different visual stories about artistic perception of the French capital. 
 - "Line.Form.Color" is all about abstract art. If you like Kandiskiy, visiting this section is a must for you.
 - My favorite section is called "Soul of Circus". I think it doesn't need extra words.
 - "Great Books of Humanity" showcases a kaleidoscope of graphics for books. 
 - There's also a "Nature World" section that was fine but didn't impress me much though. 
To cut a long story short I have to say it was a moment I will cherish forever.

The exhibition "Chef-d'oeuvres of 'École de Paris' Masters" will last until January, 27 2017. Visit the KRAMK's official website for details. Now enjoy the photos
