Andrei Rublyov, Viktor Vasnetsov, Alexander Ivanov, Vasily Kandinsky… The list of Russian artists of world significance is like Homer’s proverbial Catalogue of Ships; it seems to go on for ever. But the organisers of the series of art talks in the Russian House of Barcelona are not afraid of challenges. In fact, they love them. Elena Volnykh, a Russian art historian, will be offering eight talks on the most significant stages in the development of Russian art, from the times of ancient Rus to the 20th century. Now and then, a special talk will be devoted fully and exclusively to just one of the most prominent Russian artists, e. g., Mikhail Vrubel. In fact, this series of talks actually starts with him.
When: September — December
