Valentin Serov (1865-1911) combined elements of the Russian school of realism with the legacy of classical and innovative contemporary Western European painting. He became one of the founders of Art Nouveau in Russia at the turn of the century.

This retrospective of Serov’s best paintings and drawings will be located on three floors of the gallery. The exhibition will help to showcase the great variety of the master's creative heritage, not only through his famous portraits, but also with his landscape paintings and monumental art, which have previously been gradually neglected by researchers.

It is hoped that the artist’s theatrical work on the production of the opera "Judith" by the well known composer Alexander Serov (the artist's father), and his design for the magnificent curtain for a production of Rimsky-Korsakov's ballet "Scheherazade" for the Russian Seasons of Sergei Diaghilev.

The exhibition consists of works of eighteen Russian and five foreign museums and private collections.
