The display is supplemented with a series of sculptured works by M.M. Antokolsky, M.O. Mikeshin, S.O. Tselinsky. The themes and motifs of the works included in the exhibition were largely borrowed from the pre-Peter the Great Russian history of the 16th and 17th centuries. The artists were trying to find personalities in history who would embody essential traits of the national character. K.V. Lebedev’s monumental canvas “Martha the Mayoress. Destruction of the Novgorod Veche” (1889), which was originally introduced at the 19th exhibition of the Association of Travelling Art Exhibits, is showed at the Tretyakov Gallery for the first time after performance of a complicated set of restoration works.
