The Museum Has Acquired Graphic Works by Vladimir Begma

10.11.2011

The collection of the State M.A. Sholokhov Museum-Reserve has been replenished with eleven works of the Honoured Artist of the Russian Federation, member of the Artist’s Union of Russia, Vladimir Ivanovich Begma.

The cycle of graphic works including the pictures “Green Ducks”, “Green Ducks and a Desman”, “Wild Boars”, “Snipes”, “Peas”, “Green Swans”, “In Herbs”, “Elk”, “Night Heron”, “Bustard” and “Herons” is of artistic value and serves a more complete visualization of Sholokhov’s prose. The  artist was inspired by the lyric description of nature in the works of M.A. Sholokhov.

The significance of the art work of Vladimir Begma is proved by the success of his exposition “In the Don Country” opened in the Excursion-Exposition Centre “The People’s House”. The eleven works, which have become our museum exhibits occupy a deserving place among the fifty works exhibited.

The theme of nature used leads the artist to creative findings ranking his works high among the best of the Russian graphics. Some of them are from the series “The Red List Pages”, which reveal a civil position of the author, as the environment and its inhabitants are the most vulnerable now than ever before. A joy of discovery of an ever new living image and a trouble for the destiny of the native nature are of deep author’s concern, which can’t leave the viewers indifferent.

The art of V.I. Begma is well-known in Russia and abroad. His works of art are acquired by museums and private collectioners in Russia, Japan, the USA, Germany, Holland and Australia.
