Kuindzhi created a special type of romantic landscape based on a realistic perception of the world transformed by the artist’s personal touch.
Kuindzhi’s innovativeness manifested itself in untiring searches and experiments with light, color, paint pigments; the artist deliberately used the latest discoveries in physics and chemistry in his art.
The project will demonstrate more than 120 Kuindzhi works from the collections of the Tretyakov Gallery, State Russian Museum and several regional museums that possess the painter’s works of exceptional quality. Special emphasis will be made on the artist’s studies. It was largely when he worked on them, his artistic quests and experiments occurred.
