The Miracle of the Croatian naive. Four Generations of the Khlebinsky School from the Collection of Vladimir Temkin
The Croatian naive and, in particular, the Khlebinsky School is a unique artistic phenomenon, which has no analogues in the world. It reminds both Bosch and Bruegel, Henri Rousseau and Russian lubok, and also ... Emir Kusturica’s films, where the world is at once fabulous and recognizable to the smallest details. The exhibition will feature the works of an outstanding artist of the 20th century, Ivan Generalich, classics of Croatian and world naive art, Miyo Kovacic, Ivan Vechenaya, Dragan Gazhi, Ivan Lackovic and many other authors, made in a rare technique - reverse painting on glass.
Works of Croatian artists participate in many prestigious exhibitions, many monographs are published in all major languages, and the best museums in the world provide them with their exhibition halls (they were also exhibited here in the USSR - in the State Hermitage Museum, the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Russian the museum). Their names are included in the World Encyclopedia of Naive Art (World Encyclopedia of Naive Art), their paintings are in many museums of the former Yugoslavia and many other countries.
It is important to note that the masters of the Khlebinsky school brought the technique of drawing on glass to such an extent of virtuosity and perfection that they practically have no equal in the world art of the 20th century.
The exhibition will feature 50 works of artists of several generations of the Khlebinsky school from the collection of collector Vladimir Temkin.
