Sholokhov Days in Kazan

19.07.2016

On July 15, the National Museum of the Tatarstan Republic opened the exhibition “The Images of the Immortal Pages”.Book Graphics on the Works of M.A.Sholokhov”. The exhibition was a continuation of cooperation and an answer to the exhibition of the National Museum of the Tatarstan Republic “Arts and Crafts of the Kazan Tatars: History and Modernity”, which was shown this spring in Stanitsa Vyoshenskaya, in the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov.

The guests of the opening ceremony were greeted by G.R.Nazipova, General Director of the National Museum of the Tatarstan Republic, who thanked the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov for the exhibition presented. A Cossack flavour of the exhibition was wonderfully brightened by the performance of the folk ethnographic group “Krasnaya Gorka”.

The exhibition displays the works of the well-known artists-illustrators Orest Vereisky, Yury Rebrov, Viktor Galdyayev, Vladimir Baklanov, Valentina Petrova, Leonid Petrov and Kukryniksy. All the works are marked with a diversity of a creative search and decisions. Each of the illustrators is unique in a drawing style; and talented drawings of the episodes from “And Quiet Flows the Don”, “Virgin Soil Upturned”, “Tales from the Don”, “The Fate of a Man” and “They Fought for Their Country” take the viewers into the bright and passionate world of heroes of M.A.Sholokhov and enable them of a new comprehension of his works.

The visitors were attracted by the portrait of M.A.Sholokhov created by the artist V.F.Dorozhinsky in an original manner: the work is performed in a handwritten font and includes more than eight chapters of the novel “Virgin Soil Upturned”.

The exhibition is supplemented with photographs and editions of the works by M.A.Sholokhov, which will help to understand deeper the work of the famous writer, the world of Sholokhov’s heroes and the beauty of the Don land.

The exhibition will run till September 17, 2016, in: 2, Kremlyovskaya Str., Kazan.
