Savely Sorin
The exhibition is dedicated to portrait painter Savely Sorin (1878-1953), a representative of the first wave of Russian emigration. There are quite a few of his artworks in Russian state museums and they are also hard to find in private collections, that's why Sorin's paintings rarely take part in expositions.

After the emigration Sorin gained major recognition and financial stability, which was unusual for Russian painters in exile. After his first personal exhibition in London (1923) the painter received orders from the British Royal Family.

Savely Sorin developed his own unique style, which is represented by clarity, exquisite beauty and sharpness of lines, professional techniques. The Gallery presents 30 artworks, most of them are from nine museums and three private collections.
