The Russian Museum opened the first large Konyukhov exhibition

In St. Petersburg, the exhibition "Fyodor Konyukhov" - the work of the famous traveler and artist presented in the Mikhailovsky (Engineering) castle.

This is the first major exhibition of the author. All works are collected from private collections.
Fyodor Konyukhov personally attend the opening could not, though planned. However, he got in touch by satellite phone and told in what now a situation is. At the moment, we recall, the traveler makes a single voyage around the world on a rowing boat.

"The storm has stopped, I'm alive and well," he said. And he added that for him, as an artist, a great joy to exhibit their works in the Russian Museum, which during his studies in Leningrad, he often visited.

In addition to paintings and graphics (all guests will be shown about 50 works), the exhibition you can see the film "Revelations of the artist Fyodor Konyukhov." In this project, created by the Russian Museum specifically for the opening day, the author for the first time talks about himself as an artist - about his attitude to art, about what worries him, with all frankness.

The exhibition will be open until may 13.
