CamRuSS Russian History & Arts lecture series. Talk 4: “The Peredvizhniki: A National School of Russian Painting?” by Dr Nicky Kozicharow

Friday 1 May, 19:00

Vasily Surikov, Morning of Execution of Streltsy, 1881

This lecture gives a broad overview of Russian realism in the late 19th century through the Association of Travelling Art Exhibition (known as the Peredvizhniki or Wanderers). This talented group of artists, who included Ilya Repin and Ivan Kramskoy, sought freedom from the bureaucratic control of the Imperial Academy of Arts. In an effort to reach new audiences and market their work directly, the Peredvizhniki organised a series of travelling art exhibitions around Russia from 1871 onwards. This lecture will explore their rich artistic output in the areas of portraiture, landscape, history painting, religious painting, and genre painting, their extraordinary popularity with the Russian public, and the important role critics and collectors played in their success.
