Graphics of the 18th Century, an Exhibition at Tsaritsyno

Fine art from private collections




5 August — 17 October


200 — 400

An exhibition of graphics from the 18th century is about to open in the Bread House of the Museum-Reserve Tsaritsyno. It will feature about seventy works, some of which have not previously been exhibited in museums. 

The museum is organizing the exhibition jointly with the Graphic Collectors Club, founded by Moscow curator Sergei Podstanitsky. In his opinion, Enlightenment graphic art is distinguished by its elegance, lightness, high level of skill, and free choice of themes. 

The graphic art of the 18th century was popular among Russian contemporaries — exhibits from their original collections form the basis of the exposition. Visitors will be able to see graphic sheets from the collections of artists Konstantin Somov, Pavel Radimov, and Nikolai Sobolev, Imperial Army General Nikolai Sablukov, Prince Nikolai Orlov, and the Counts of the Sheremetev dynasty. 

Of the graphics by foreign masters, the exhibition will feature works by English artist Thomas Lawrence, French engraver Francois Boucher, and portraitists Giovanni Battista Tiepolo and Jean-Louis de Velly. 

To enter the exhibition, one must present a QR code at the entrance to prove they have been vaccinated or have recovered from Covid, or a certificate of negative PCR test together with an identity document. Visitation without a QR code is available to children under 18 years of age accompanied by an adult with a QR code.
