Exhibition “The Study and World of the Writer” in Shchelykovo

18.01.2019

The Intermuseum exhibition project “The Study and World of the Writer”, which under the auspices of the Literary Museums Association of the Russian Museum Union was shown last year in seven museums of Russia, continues its run in “Shchelykovo”, the State Memorial and Natural Museum-Reserve of A.N.Ostrovskiy. The project curator is the National M.A.Sholokhov Museum-Reserve.

The exhibition is opened on January 18, to run until February 28, 2019.

The visitors will learn about the writers and poets who lived and worked during the XVIII–XX centuries, from G.R.Derzhavin to M.A.Sholokhov. The photo pictures by Karp Pashinyan, Honoured Worker of Culture of the Russian Federation, member of the Union of Journalists and the Union of Designers of Russia, consultant photographer of the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov, will tell about their work and the atmosphere reigning in their houses, about their intellectual interests and literary preferences.

The photo artist tried through the interior of the studies of the great Russian writers and poets to show their lives, character traits, to reveal their personalities more deeply and to perceive the connection of the creators with the world around them.

The visitors will see the studies of different eras, which are united by the fact that a special place in them is occupied by the writing table, at which the writer created his literary works, and the library. The objects surrounding a person can tell a lot about his temperament, hobbies and circle of his friends. The exhibition enables the viewers to perceive the subtlest correspondence between the images of their literary creations and the architectural appearance and interior of the houses where the masters of the word lived.
