Stanitsa Vyoshenskaya in the Works of Painter R.G.Maksyutov

In February, 1987, the painting collection of the National M.A.Sholokhov Museum-Reserve was added with 16 new works by R.G.Maksyutov, Honoured Artist of Russia (1986) from the Moscow Region (1925–1996).

Maksyutov, one of the most remarkable Russian landscape painters, visited in the 60-s Stanitsa Vyoshenskaya, where he met with M.A.Sholokhov. Here, in Vyoshenskaya, R.G.Maksyutov got acquainted with his future wife.

On the banks of the Don, the artist painted a series of landscapes: “In Stanitsa Vyoshenskaya”, “The House of M.A.Sholokhov”, “A Pass”, “Spring”, “The Pier on the Don”, “Steppe. A Grey Day”, “In a Village on the Don”, and others. All the works are imbued with a lyrical sense, with finest colours, with a mood arising from communion with the world of wildlife.

The picture “The House of M.A.Sholokhov” was demonstrated in the Literary Museum of Stanitsa Vyoshenskaya, at the exhibition “M.A.Sholokhov.The Life and Work”.

The favourites of the painter were the works connected with his native Moscow region and Stanitsa Vyoshenskaya.

He was a regular participant in the urban, regional, zonal, republican and international exhibitions since 1951. The exhibitions of the artist’s works were held in 1959, 1960, 1961, 1975, 1985, in Moscow, and in 1961, his exhibition took place in Stanitsa Vyoshenskaya, in the cinema building.

At present, the pictures by R.G.Maksyutov are kept in the fine art museums of Tambov, Penza, Irkutsk, Pskov, Krasnodar, Kostroma, Podolsk and Stanitsa Vyoshenskaya the Rostov Region. His works are presented in private collections in Japan, Germany, France, Italy and the USA.
