The 'Our Artists' Gallery presents an exposition 'Weisberg. Coloured Period', it's the third one in 'The Sixties' series.
This time our attention is focused on Vladimir Weisberg, his early period in particular. There are 30 artworks on the exposition — from The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts and private collections from both Moscow and Saint-Petersburg.
Vladimir Weisberg (1924-1985) is a remarkable Russian artist and art theorist. He belongs to the generation of creators who found recognition during the 'Thaw'. His artistic path lead from impressionistic and colourful paintings to light, almost monochromic artworks.
Portraits and still life paintings created during this 'colourful' period express the special 'Thaw' atmosphere, with its optimistic expectations, genuine joy and clear breathing of life.
