The exposition "Russian Art: Finds and Discoveries" from the ABA Galleries (USA) will present works of great Russian artists created in the XIX - XX centuries, including works by Ilya Repin, Konstantin Korovin, Abram Arkhipov, Boris Anisfeld, Natalia Goncharova, Robert Falk.


The legendary New York Aviation Gallery, founded by Anatoly Bekkerman more than thirty five years ago, is well known to the Moscow public due to the successful projects of the last years of the past.


The exhibition "Russian Art: Findings and Discoveries" is dedicated to works of Russian painting. The exposition will include more than seventy works of the museum level. Some of them have not only artistic but also historical value. The canvas of Pavel Tretyakov, a traveler of Abram Arkhipov "Summer Evening. Fishing boats in the village harbor "was bought by a famous Norwegian diplomat and collector Alfred Danielsen, who worked in Moscow from1929 to 1935.


Rare in the work of Alexei Savrasov, the landscape with a figured scene also has Scandinavian origin. In the pre-revolutionary decade, the picture was acquired by hereditary Norwegian manufacturers who successfully engaged in business in Russia until the events of 1917 forced them to return to their historical homeland together with a collection of Russian art.


Documented provenance of paintings "Crimean Landscape" by Konstantin Korovin and "Still Life with Panda's Fruit and Bamboo Boughs" by David Burliuk can be traced back to the pre-war times.


In addition, the exhibition will feature watercolors by Ilya Repin, a portrait of one of Boris Grigoryev's favorite models, and Boris Anisfeld's The Court of Paris, the earliest surviving work from a series of works on mythological and biblical subjects created by the artist in the 1910s and a rare example of creativity Natalia Goncharova "Ornament" in 1910, as well as landscapes of I. Shishkin, A. Dubovsky and P. Vereshchagin, works by A. Tyshler, A. Exter, N. Goncharova, M. Vasilieva and R. Falk.
