Impressionism in Russia @ Museum Frieder Burda
Sat 27 March – Sun 15 August 2021, Museum Frieder Burda

An exhibition of the Museum Frieder Burda, Baden-Baden, and the Museum Barberini, Potsdam, in collaboration with the State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow. In the late nineteenth century, many Russian artists took inspiration from the themes and techniques of the French impressionists. Portraying scenes of Russian everyday life en plein air, they tried to capture the fleeting moment in their paintings. Artists like Natalia Goncharova, Mikhail Larionov, and Kazimir Malevich, who later formed the avant-garde, developed their own new art from impressionist studies of light. Showing how international their pictorial language had become by 1900, the exhibition will integrate these Russian artists into the project of European modern art.
