Visiting Pushkin

18.02.2015

On February, 14, the State Memorial Historical-Literary and Natural Landscape Museum-Reserve of A.S.Pushkin “Mikhailovskoye” opened the exhibition “…Pray for Your Children, Quiet Don!” from the collection of the National M.A.Sholokhov Museum-Reserve.

The famous Pushkin Reserve is situated in the ancient land of Pskov. This nook of the country sanctified by the name of Alexander Pushkin for more than a hundred years has been a special and divinely marked site. Here, the soul is disposed for something lofty and noble. This wonderful world makes the feelings of Motherland complete. To understand and love Russia you are sure to be on visits to Pushkin in Mikhailovskoye.

The exhibition opening ceremony was held on the days of the XVIII February scientific museum readings in memory of S.S.Geychenko. It was joined by the colleagues from the museum-reserves of “Abramtsevo” and “F.I.Tyutchev “Muranovo Estate”, from the All-Russian A.S.Pushkin Museum, and museum workers from Moscow and Saint-Petersburg.

The exhibition “…Pray for Your Children, Quiet Don!” is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. It makes possible for the visitors to recall the Great War, Russian Cossacks, the Quiet Don sons, who made feats of arms and died as heroes. This war was largely forgotten, and for new generations of Russia it is unknown. This war was overshadowed by the Revolution followed by the Civil War. For the Soviet Russia it was an alien war to be avoided of remembering.

The exhibition displays over 200 items from the Museum-Reserve collection: photos, letters, medals and breastplates of the First World War, munitions, weapons, ammunition, painting and graphic works by the celebrated artists, postcards and popular prints picturing Don Cossacks and their feats of arms.

 

The exhibition will run in Mikhailovskoye until March, 28, 2015.
